Acupuncture and Gua Sha for Foot Pain Relief

Uncategorized Nov 05, 2022

Do you suffer from foot pain? Is it impacting your day to day activities? I have a solution for you! A combination of acupuncture + gua sha can resolve pain and get you back on your feet (hehe).

If you have foot pain, you know how bad it can hurt & how much it can impact your quality of life. You have probably tried many different treatments with little relief. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, people experience pain when their energy level, also known as qi, has become stagnated. It is believed that this energy flows through different channels in the body, also known as meridians. Conditions such as arthritis happen when there is a stagnation of qi inside of the joints.

Introducing: Gua sha 

A Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that involves scraping the body with a smooth stone. It is proven to increase blood circulation and reduce pain! It essentially feels like a deep tissue massage - who doesn’t love a foot massage!?

Next up: Acupuncture

Acupuncture helps to reduce inflammation, increase blood circulation, increase mobility and reduce pain. Acupuncture + gua sha combination is helpful for treating the following foot problems:
