GUA SHA

FOR CHRONIC SOFT TISSUE PAIN AND DYSFUNCTION

For those new to Gua Sha, the technique involves applying a smooth edged tool to the skin. "Gua" means "to scrape" and "Sha" literally translates as "sand". In this case, "sand" refers to an abnormal texture that one is able to palpate as the edge of the tool encounters affected soft tissue.  It is a Chinese technique over 1,000 years old first practiced with a stone or jade

Gua Sha is applied to chronic soft tissue dysfunctional/painful areas with the emphasis on restoring normal circulatory function, improving flexibility, range of motion, and stength. A muscle spasm or trigger point results in prolonged contraction of muscle fibers.  When this happens, capillaries are squeezed or blocked causing ischemia and the build up of lactic acid.  This toxin interferes with normal muscle function.  Gua Sha can help anyone with a soft tissue injury or chronic muscle tightness.  GRASTON TECHNIQUE IS GUA SHA!

KINESIO-TAPING

The Most Advanced & Recommended Therapeutic Taping Method for Comfort & Stability.

The Kinesio Taping® Method involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. The first technique gives the practitioner the opportunity to actually give support while maintaining full range of motion. This enables the individual to participate in their normal physical activity with functional assistance. The second technique, which is most commonly used in the acute stage of rehabilitation, helps prevent overuse or over-contraction and helps provide facilitation of lymph flow for an entire 24 hour period. Correctional techniques include mechanical, lymphatic, ligament/tendon, fascia, space and functional. Kinesio Tex® Tape can be used in conjunction with other therapies, including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, massage therapy, and electrical stimulation.

Kinesio Taping® affects the activation of the neurological system, the body's information processor and the circulatory system. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body, but they also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms. Consequently, more attention was given to the importance of muscle function, that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body's own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, such as Kinesio Tex® Tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. Employment of Kinesio Taping® creates a completely new and innovative approach to treating nerves, muscles and organs.
