with Lisa Bouchard

Calendar Jun 5, 2024 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Chinese medicine practitioners have been using friction to treat pain, reduce fevers and treat coughs for thousands of years. In modern times, guasha can be used to treat work-related conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Learn the basic scraping techniques that can be applied to numerous body parts as well as the essential safety precautions. Included will be a calming sequence for the head and neck to encourage lymph flow, which could reduce sinus congestion, facial puffiness and smooth out wrinkles. Guasha is simple to learn, highly effective and can be done on yourself or others. Guasha spoons will be provided and we'll discuss other tools that can also be used. Wear a swimsuit top (no sports bras) if you would like work done on the skin of your upper back and shoulders. Please bring a yoga mat and blanket as we will perform these techniques in both seated and supine positions.
