Want to learn more about how to use Gua sha after a workout? Join Rachelle for a 45 minute class on how to use “Gua sha” (pronounced gwa sha), a staple of most Asian’s first aid kit at Club Pilates Longmont, located next to Lucky’s Market and ModMarket on Ken Pratt Boulevard.
Why use Gua sha?
Gua sha means rubbing and scraping, and this technique is applied to the skin using various tools until light redness appears at the surface. This reaction in the skin causes anti-inflammatory and immuno-protective effects that may last several days to a week.
Gua sha works on many concerns, including muscle pain, stiffness, scar tissue and soft tissue adhesion, common cold/fever, coughing/wheezing, digestive disorders, cellulite and stretch marks, sagging muscles, aging/thin skin, and many more! The goal of gua sha is to increase microperfusion so that the muscles and fascia can move more freely. This results in decreased muscle and joint pain, increased circulation and improved mobility for peak performanceless with less injuries.
Rachelle Lambert, Licensed Acupuncturist uses gua sha techniques developed over 8 years of practice and will teach you how to add this to your personal regimen.
