Gua Sha Therapy: Scraping Treatment for the Neck

This video shows Gua Sha Scraping Therapy for Neck by Dr. Bob Wong, a certified TCM
practitioner in Brisbane. Gua Sha is a Chinese medicine healing technique. It involves
scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve blood circulation. In a Gua Sha therapy,
a Chinese medicine practitioner applies massage oil on the skin and scrapes the skin with
a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua sha massage tool. The TCM Practitioner
repeatedly scrapes the skin in short or long strokes in a downward motion. Thus
stimulating the microcirculation of the soft tissue which increases blood flow. As a result,
gua sha reduces inflammation and promotes healing.

Cupping Therapy for Shoulder Pain Relief

The video shows cupping therapy for shoulder pain relief. So what is cupping therapy?
Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine practice. It is a technique used to stimulate
blood flow in the body. This makes cupping therapy an effective treatment in relieving
muscle tightness, soreness, and tension.

To illustrate this ancient therapeutic treatment works by placing special cups onto
the skin. These cups then create a vacuum on the applied areas. As a result, the muscles
and tissues is sucked or drawn upwards. Now, this causes an increase in blood flow and
loosens the muscles and tissues. Thus, stimulating the natural healing process of the
body.

Moreover, cupping is considered a deep tissue massage. This is due to its functions and
numerous benefits. Some of these include breaking up scar tissues and reducing pain in
the shoulders, back, and neck areas.

Furthermore, cupping may cause temporary soreness and bruises. However, these are not
harmful. TCM practitioners actually view them as favourable outcomes. In fact, soreness
and bruises are indications that blockages and toxins in the body are removed successfully.

Acupressure for Sinusitis (Sinus Congestion Relief)

The video shares acupressure for sinusitis relief. But, did you know that a sinus infection
affects 31 million people in the US alone each year? Thus, catching a sinus infection and
developing sinusitis is more common than you thought.

The sinuses are small air pockets. They are located behind your forehead, nose,
cheekbones, and in between the eyes. Also, the sinuses produce mucus. A thin and
flowing liquid that protects the body by trapping and moving the germs away.

However, sometimes a bacteria or allergen causes the sinuses to produce too much
mucus. The excess then blocks the openings of your sinuses. The mucus buildup can
become thick and encourage bacteria and germs which can lead to a bacterial or
viral infection.

The infection causes the sinuses and nasal passages to become inflamed. This inflammation
is called sinusitis. Most sinus infections are viral. The infection commonly goes away in a
week or two without treatment. However, if symptoms do not improve, it is advisable to
consult your doctor.

Be sure to watch the video to know the acupressure points for sinusitis relief! If you want
a more holistic approach in treatment. You might want to consider acupuncture. It is a
Chinese medicine practice that stimulates the natural healing process of the body.
