How to Use your Guasha to Improve Muscle Soreness

Guasha is THE natural tool for increasing blood and energy flow, improving circulation, decreasing inflammation, reducing tension and muscle soreness.

Any Guasha tool works by moving energy around the body. Guasha is the practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain.


Researchers have carried out small studies on the following groups of people to see if guasha works:

  • people with neck and shoulder pain from computer use
  • male weightlifters, to help with recovery after training
  • older adults with back pain

With the following results:

    2014 study found that gua sha improved the range of movement and reduced pain in people who used computers frequently compared with a control group that had no treatment.

    In a 2017 study, weightlifters who had guasha felt that lifting weights took less effort after treatment, suggesting that guasha treatment speeds up muscle recovery.

    Older adults with back pain were treated with guasha. After a week, those who had received gua sha treatment reported greater flexibility and less back pain than the control group.

    Guasha has been shown to increase microcirculation and that increase in circulation may also play a role in decreasing in muscle soreness, in and near the treated area.


    1. Identify a localised area for treatment
    2. Press the tool into the muscle with smooth, firm strokes in one direction
    3. Repeat 5 times
    4. Reposition and repeat

    Use daily or as often as required to relieve muscle soreness
