Gua sha 2nd Edition PDF -‘Sometimes called coining, spooning or scraping, Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface that intentionally creates ‘transitory therapeutic petechiae’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis.’

Gua sha has been used for centuries in Asia, in Asian immigrant communities and by acupuncturists and practitioners of traditional East Asian medicine worldwide. With the expansion of traditional East Asian medicine, Gua sha has been used over broad geographic areas and by millions of people. It is valuable in the treatment of pain and for functional problems with impaired movement, the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many acute or chronic disorders. Research has demonstrated Gua sha radically increases surface microperfusion that stimulates immune and anti-inflammatory responses that persist for days after treatment.

The second edition expands on the history of Gua sha and similar techniques used in early Western Medicine, detailing traditional theory, purpose and application and illuminated by science that focuses its relevance to modern clinical practice as well as scholarly inquiry. This book brings the technique alive for practitioners, with clear discussion of how to do it –including correct technique, appropriate application, individualization of treatment – and when to use it, with over 50 case examples, and superb color photographs and line drawings that demonstrate the technique.

pjf “There is a lot of very important and useful information in this book. But the point prescription tables in chapter 8 are out of focus and unreadable. This makes the kindle version of this book useless when it comes to clinical application. Extremely disappointed with the poor technical quality in an otherwise very valuable book.”

allison b. “To my knowledge this is the only book on the market about an ancient technique used throughout Asia by family members as well as by healers and doctors of Eastern medicine. Gua sha was not included in the “menu” of techniques imported from post communist China in the body of knowledge referred to as “traditional Chinese medicine”. Gua sha is not included in the curriculum of schools teaching accupuncture and Chinese medicine. Arya Nielsen Phd, has spend decades practicing accupuncture along with gua sha. In addition to initiating and participating in numerous clinical studies, she teaches gua sha and practices this medicine at a major New York hospital. She has made it her life’s work to reintroduce this overlooked technique, which is inexpensive, not difficult to learn and appropriate for many clinical conditions. Her book is an introduction to the technique along with an overview of relevant Chinese medical theory and references to a copious body of clinical studies documenting the efficacy and immuno -active effects of gua sha.”
Brian RN “this is a great book for those who use or are interested in using “graston-like” coining or scraping tools.
lots of references and examples of case studies.

my only issue is the price. little expensive but worth it.”

nutcha yodrabum “After having read this marvelous copy, this book is highly recommended for those plastic surgery residents and other residents in related fields in facial surgery and rejuvenation. Due to the fact that it is the easiest and quickest approach to grasp the main content at the same level as those experts. I found that the content in each section is systematically presented with well-structured moves. This facilitates us to progressively understand those sophisticated issues easily.
Apart from this, this book is appropriate for plastic surgeons and those related medical specialists who aim to update their knowledge with high standards and be well-equipped with the most up-to-date issues.

Compared with the book of which title was shared decades ago, I found a number of distinctive issues presented in this current book. For instance, in terms of anatomy, the previous concerns were about the facial nerve and the sensory nerve. It has shifted and highlighted on the vascular network. In case of operation/ procedure which used to focus only the facial surgery procedure (eg. facelift ) to both of the surgical and the non-surgical facial rejuvenation. This point includes filler and botulinum toxin injection. These have been received a lot of attention currently.
The authors also step forward to the energy device issues and so forth. They are generous enough to share their valuable and meticulous experiences which cannot be found elsewhere.

On top of that, the main contributors are the world-leading and world authority plastic surgeon who has been widely recognized across the world. They are also a highly proficient person with expertise not only in the surgery but also in the non-surgical aesthetic procedures. According to this book, the authors evidentially demonstrates the high academic standard.

What I am impressed a great deal with this book are their fascinating illustrations, VDO, and cadaveric dissection. Those pictures are not only that beauty but also revealing a smart presentation method. These enable us to understand the content, particularly on focusing on the plane of various structures.

The book is worth buying.”
