Learn Gua Sha from best-selling massage course instructor, Mark Perren-Jones
What people are saying about this Gua sha massage course:
"Mark Perren-Jones' massage courses and instruction proves to be the most expansive I have ever experienced for my practice. I have been in surgical practice and also alternative medicine for many years. His knowledge base is fantastic and the method of delivery is engaging and easy to follow, and want to! I have enrolled in three other massage courses after the first one because it is surely to not disappoint." Dr. S. H.
There is a reason that so many of the best massage therapists use Gua Sha (also known as instrument assisted soft tissue massage therapy and Graston technique).
It loosens muscles, treats pain, is used for better health, is great for facial rejuvenation and helps systemic problems such as digestive and respiratory problems.
Mark has been using Gua Sha to treat thousands of his massage clients and his own body for over 25 years and has seen remarkable results in his massage clinic.
You do not need any massage training! In this course, Mark teaches you everything you need to know to effectively treat :
your own pain and your family, friends and massage clients
as an anti-aging tool for the face-a non-surgical facelift!
health conditions such as constipation, insomnia and headaches
You will learn how to detect and break up scar tissue, adhesions and tissues that cause pain and dysfunction easily, quickly and painlessly.
If you are a massage therapist this will not only get you better results with your clients but also save your hands as well!
Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’,
You do not need to buy any expensive tools. You can use things as simple as the lid of a jar, a Chinese soup spoon or even just a coin.
In fact, modern research shows Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This is why it has been effectively on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting and many other health conditions and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders as well.
The beauty of this treatment technique is that it is easy to perform, inexpensive and very powerful.
In this course Mark will guide you step by step so that you too will have the knowledge and understanding to treat yourself, your friends and family and your clients just like people have been doing for centuries.
I look forward to seeing you in class!

- This gua sha course I have designed for anyone, from massage therapists or someone completely untrained in massage that would love to know how to be able to treat their own pains, or other people's pain and other health conditions naturally with this technique that has been used for thousands of years and is incredibly effective!
Welcome to the incredible world of Gua Sha, a centuries old technique that will save your hands as a massage therapist and also give you a brilliant technique to treat yourself and others.
I have created a Facebook group that is for educational purposes so you can ask questions and either I or other students will answer. You can share information and it really is so that we can all help each other to learn, share and have fun.
Gua Sha is also known as spooning or coining because they use traditionally Chinese porcelain soup spoons or even coins to do Gua Sha. There are other things that are in the kitchen that you can use as well. Here I go through what you can use if you do not already have a Gua Sha tool.
Ok, let's do some practice. As you will soon see, it is easy to do and feels fabulous!
The Chinese use Gua Sha to help with tonifying their skin such as the face and they swear by it. A non-surgical facelift! If it is good enough for Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow, then its good enough for me. You should do this everyday to see great results.
Apart from being great for facial skin rejuvenation, it is also very good to relax the facial muscles from stress and is a beautiful distressing treatment in itself.
This is a fabulous way to treat your own neck. It is great for neck pain and tension, it feels fabulous and works brilliantly. Here I also show a couple of very powerful acupressure points to help with neck pain. Let in the course we will incorporate a lot more acupressure points with our treatments.
This is good for hand and thumb pain, poor circulation in the hands and just to refresh your poor tired hands after a long day.
Now it is time to use your new skills to treat ailments such as emotional conditions, digestive disorders whilst not only using Gua Sha but we also start using acupressure points and work the energy channels known as meridians in traditional Chinese medicine. Make sure that you download the PDF file as this has all of the instructions for you to use if needed later on if you forget which points to use.
Ok, it is time to take a look at how to help musculoskeletal problems such as joint and muscle aches and pains. Please download the PDF file as it has all of your points and areas to treat for each painful condition.
Well done-you did it! You now have another great technique that you can use on yourself or for clients, friends or family.
