The Gua Sha massage method has recently gained popularity for its benefits when applied to the face. However, long before social media trends, healers used Gua Sha as a way to treat chronic pain, increase blood flow, detox the body, and more. Gua Sha at Mind Body Shen is a whole-body treatment that leaves you looking and feeling beautiful and healthy!

Procedure Time

Treatment length can vary. Typically, Gua Sha is incorporated with other beneficial treatments such as traditional massage, cupping, and acupuncture therapy. Treatments at Mind Body Shen can be 30, 60, or 90 minutes!

How it Works

Your Gua Sha provider uses a smooth-edged tool to apply pressure in downward strokes across different areas of your body. This motion raises small, rash-like dots called petechiae across the body.

Why Get Gua Sha at Mind Body Shen?


Lymphatic Drainage

The lymphatic system is responsible for a lot of healing. The system itself stretches throughout the entire body, and it is beneficial to use tools like Gua Sha to help move lymphatic fluid throughout the system. 


Toxin Release and Increased Blood Flow

The act of Gua Sha helps increase blood flow to the surface of the skin and is believed to release toxins and promote healing!


Increased Blood Flow

Increased circulation helps prevent diseases, promote healing, and even energizes you.

What to Expect?


We always have an in-depth consultation with each of our patients prior to their appointment. This allows us to fully understand your needs and how to adapt the treatment to be most beneficial to you! 

Gua Sha Treatment

At the start of the treatment, your provider will use oil on your body to help with the treatment. During Gua Sha, your provider uses a dull-edged tool to apply pressure to the desired treatment area(s). The pressure may increase as the treatment continues, and you may notice your skin getting red with rash-like dots called petechiae. 


Some patients report feeling calm and relaxing after a treatment, and others find they feel energized. Full-body Gua Sha helps improve circulation, fight chronic pain, promote healing, and release toxins. You may also notice a brightened and tightened complexion, reduction in cellulite, and a more even skin tone.
