Did this picture scare you? Don’t worry it not as horrible as it looks. My good friend Ray studies Chinese medicine and alternative treatments; after discussing for a while about my health, he decided to perform gua sha on me.
I was a bit scared at first: it did look painful but as soon as he started, I surprised how non-painful it was. Afterwards, I felt very relaxed and mellow, which is something I haven’t felt for a while.
The red marks should fade in a few days. Interestingly enough, he was able to tell a lot of things about my health, depending on the location of the marks and of their colour.
East Asian treatments sure are interesting!
