Gua Sha or ‘Spooning’ therapy Cairns – Spooning Cairns also known as spooning massage cairns.

Welcome to Cairns Massage and Gua Sha

Gua sha is sometime translated as ‘spooning’ althrough the term literally means to scrap the skin until its red.  It is a very deep tissue massage technique and involves repeatedly scraping eh skin with a smooth edge – traditionally a ceramic chinese soup spoon.

The skin is oiled and then strokes are made repeatedly along the muscle belly.  Like cupping, the technique is often used for clearing stuck muscles and muscle knots.  It is for relieving muscle tension and joint aches and pains along with stiffness.

A massage is the process of applying pressure, tension, motion, or vibration to the soft tissues of the body.  Working on the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, connective tissue or lymph system for a positive response.

In addition to just feeling wonderful it can be a form of therapy for parts of the body, or to the entire body, to help injuries heal, relieve stress, improve circulation or to help control pain.  It is one of the oldest forms of therapy because it’s been used by a variety of cultures for thousands of years.

There are many different types of massage to choose from but there are several basic principles.  First, good communication is essential to a beneficial massage.  Client and massage therapist need to talk about what’s expected before beginning the session.  What areas need work or need to be avoided?

How much pressure is comfortable?  In addition the client’s medical history and current physical condition need to be reviewed.
