刮痧 Guasha "To Scrape Away Fever"
The marks fade in 2-3 days and represent the removal of blood stagnation, promoting circulation. After the treatment I felt immediate relief from a headache and a general sense of relief and relaxedness. While the marks do look a bit ghastly (in earlier times Asian immigrants in the US have been accused of child/elder abuse) they don't hurt at all and I will definitely be going back, especially because the cold brings all sorts of aches and pains, not to mention illness. If anyone back home can find a good homeopathic doctor I would definitely reccommend this treatment! Love,
