Guasha, also known as scraping or dermal friction, involves the use of an instrument with a rounded edge such as a Chinese soup spoon that is scraped along your skin after your skin has been coated with oil. This technique is a form of deep tissue therapy and the results can be dramatic. Like suction cups, this technique may leave bruises on the skin that disappear after a few days.
