It’s okay. I hadn’t heard of it either until a friend in Scotland sent me the lowdown.

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that’s been around for donkeys of years. Maybe to people in China but not here in the US.

It means ‘scraping’ of the skin with a special stone, usually made of rose quartz or jade.
