Educational Tour at Science Art Pte Ltd :- Gua Sha(刮痧), Ba Gua Massage, Acupuncture (针灸) and herbs identification

Today, I have an interesting day. As a Chinese, I have also heard and use traditional medicine and Chinese alternative medicine(link to Amazon Adv). As an avid SPA goer, I also love massage. Well today, I was given the chance to have a more in-depth understanding of Gua Sha(刮痧), Acupuncture (link to Amazon Adv), massage and herbs identification with a bunch of students from Chinese High.

We started the day with a course outline; follow by TCM history, present day application, myths and truths, different TCM components theories, break and finally practical lessons.

There are so many things to learn. Take Gua Sha (basically using any objects with smooth round edge - commonly side of horns - to massage your body)as an example , one must not use force more than 10 Newton (or approx 1 kg in Earth gravity) to scrub against the skin, the horn must be held at 90 degree or below and it must be in one direction (which direction depend on your age and which part of the body). Any error in Gua Sha may do more damage than cure.

In the four hour programme, it is a very enriching experience for the students and me. Held by a reputable TCM provider in Singapore, Science Art, I felt that skills learnt here can help everyone make life more comfortable for their love ones esp. the young ones and our senior citizens!
