Gua Sha is a powerful, ancient healing technique that can help you head a cold or flu off at the pass and put the power of healing into your own hands. During this time of ongoing threats of viral outbreaks, we all can use this ancient healing approach to improve the effectiveness of our immune system so we can release viruses before they get driven deeper into the body.

Just as I began this course, I was feeling a load of stress in my neck and shoulders. So much so, I was having a stress headache. I decided to do Gua Sha on my neck and shoulders. There was so much Sha coming out it was incredible. When I was done about 80% of my pain was gone.

This course has helped me become proficient, and I am so happy and excited that I purchased this course, for so many reasons!
—Dr. J. Celeste Ruland, ND LMT CPT
I practiced on a person who was starting to get sick. I did gua sha on his neck and upper back as well as on his elbow. It was incredibly effective!! His cold ended up not progressing any further and within 2 days he was feeling back to normal!
—Gabi Masek, Acupuncture Student
My chiropractor introduced me to cupping and from there I researched other alternative treatment options, and Gua Sha appeared. After seeing a few videos online I knew I had to take a course to better understand the technique needed for proper application. This course not only taught me proper technique, but a new way to heal injuries and everyday pain. Now my whole family (my athletic children and my wife who is a hairdresser) enjoy themselves with a lot less pain and discomfort.Thank you for putting this course together.
—Jose Garcia, EMT, Personal Trainer, Power Lifting Coach

I came across Gua Sha from an incorrect search on Amazon. Trying to learn exactly what it was, I found that it interested me very much, and I signed up for the class that night. Learn GuaSha was a great class and well worth my time! The layout, instructors, and information was excellent. I have already started to incorporate it into my massage practice as well as self-care and treatment at home. I highly recommended this course! A+
