Gua Sha Class with Ying Juan
Gua Sha class
Gua sha is the ancient art of using a stone, spoon, or coin to move Qi and Blood and release stagnation. It provides a relaxation of the body and mind. Gua Sha is a valuable treatment recognized currently in the West for its ability to increase circulation, collagen production, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is used more widely for its ability to help with pain, impaired movement, illness, respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute and chronic disorders like hepatitis and fibromyalgia. Research has shown its ability to stimulate immune and anti-inflammatory responses that persist for days after the actual treatment.
Gua Sha has been used for centuries in Asian medicine. This class is offered by Yingjuan Lian who was born in Beijing into a lineage of Chinese physicians. She is a certified practitioner of Gua Sha and will be sharing her personal experience of this art for the health and rejuvenation of our face and body.
