Dec 12, 2019
The New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine has produced information sheet in English and Chinese Simplified languages explaining about Gua Sha, which also known as Gua Sha therapy. It is a traditional treatment based on the meridian-acupoint theory of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
It is important for professionals engaging with children and young people under the age of 16 to be aware of the differences in bruising appearance between Gua Sha therapy and what may be perceived as bruising from family harm.
Gua Sha is not recommended for use on children under the age of 16 in New Zealand.
The information sheet is published on the health navigator website.
