Scrape therapy can help to dredge your meridians
Scrape therapy seems like something for the older generation but a lot of younger people are falling in love with it. Some even take photos of their bloody back to show off. It looks painful but they seem to like it. So is scrape therapy useful?

Scrape therapy is a therapy from Chinese communities. In the old days you use a coin or spoon and nowadays most use buffalo horn skin scraping sets. From Chinese medicine perspective, the theory of scrape therapy lies in the repetitive scraping to dredge and clear the meridiens, activate blood and relieve stasis, dispel cold air, relieve swelling and pain. It is suitable for those with wind cold flu, headaches, shoulder and neck pain, muscle pains.

Scrape therapy usually is done to the back from top to bottom. Massage oil is usually added in to reduce friction. Red spots appear on the skin to represent regulation of qi and blood. More red spots or pain during therapy does not necessarily mean it’s been more effective and it can vary by person. After scrape therapy you may have red or purple blood spots that last for 3-5 days.

Important notes regarding scrape therapy
