The numerous benefits of Gua Sha include: it may resolve spasms and pain, promote normal circulation to the muscles, tissues and organs, and has an immediate effect on coughing and wheezing. Research has shown that Gua Sha causes a four-fold increase in microcirculation of surface tissue (Nielsen et a. 2007) and can reduce inflammation and stimulate the immune system with heme-oxygenase 1 (Braun et al. 2011; Chan et al.2011). The heme-degrading enzyme heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) has cytoprotective, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover, HO-1 is reportedly involved in suppressing destructive immune responses associated with inflammation and autoimmune diseases.
