Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
To my knowledge this is the only book on the market about an ancient technique used throughout Asia by family members as well as by healers and doctors of Eastern medicine. Gua sha was not included in the "menu" of techniques imported from post communist China in the body of knowledge referred to as "traditional Chinese medicine". Gua sha is not included in the curriculum of schools teaching accupuncture and Chinese medicine. Arya Nielsen Phd, has spend decades practicing accupuncture along with gua sha. In addition to initiating and participating in numerous clinical studies, she teaches gua sha and practices this medicine at a major New York hospital. She has made it her life's work to reintroduce this overlooked technique, which is inexpensive, not difficult to learn and appropriate for many clinical conditions. Her book is an introduction to the technique along with an overview of relevant Chinese medical theory and references to a copious body of clinical studies documenting the efficacy and immuno -active effects of gua sha.

A good work on the history and definition of the Gua Sha. Very limited information on actually doing the technique. If you're looking for an instructional work, this is not the book.

great book very informative. I would recommend this to anyone interested in manual therapy and helping themselves or others with muscular pain or other issues. It's better to learn to help yourself when you can.

lots of research supporting a very healing modality. This is for the health professional - not the lay person - too complex for lay people.
