Gua Sha Workshop at Sage!

Gua Sha Workshop at Sage!

Come to Sage Community Health Collective to learn about this powerful healing tool and gain a skill that you can use for the care of yourself, your family, and your community.

Gua sha (or spooning) is the centuries-old practice of applying pressure and friction to the surface of the skin usually with a smooth-edged spoon (or other therapeutic tool) to release toxins held in muscular tissue, invigorate blood and lymph circulation in specific areas of the body, relieve chronic muscle tension, and more.

It is often used for treating chronic migraines and headaches, neck/shoulder/back tension and pain, colds/flus, and more.

Gua sha supplies will be provided at the workshop. Those attending should wear tank tops and bring a scarf for covering up afterward.
