Gua sha is a modality used across Asia in the clinic and the home, and now in the West. Gua sha is a part of acupunc- ture therapy, but not limited by law to acupuncture practice. Research into the physiology of therapies like acupuncture and gua sha quali?es what the ancients ‘knew. Science works to clarify both bene?t and risk of our medicine. When I began practice 36 years ago, I was trained in East Asian medicine but had no training in research. There was zero access to research facilities through acupunc- ture schools. Many years later I con- sulted Helen Langevin, MD about my interest in researching the bio- mechanism of gua sha. She advised starting with basic science: what can be used to establish a measure of change that might inform what is actually observed? I mulled this over and looked for a doctoral program that would support my research interest. I matriculated to an aca- demic PhD program, and through a chance meeting at my job at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, was invited by Dr. Gustav Dobos to conduct research on gua sha at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Es- sen, Germany. There we performed one of the ?rst investigations on the physiology of gua sha: measuring changes in microperfusion of sur- face tissue 1. From that ?rst inves- tigation have come other biomarker studies; we now have something to say about the science of gua sha. GUA SHA INCREASES SURFACE MICROPERFUSION Gua sha produces transitory therapeutic petechiae that represent extravasation of blood in the subcu- tis. Using laser Doppler imaging, we scanned 11 ‘healthy (but stressed) subjects (doctors and nurses who worked at the Kliniken Essen) who had ‘normal myalgia pain and evi- dence of ‘sha based on palpation. We established a baseline scan for each subject before gua sha, and The Science of Gua Sha BY ARYA NIELSEN, PhD P aci?c Symposium has been an annual meeting of minds, uniting Eastern medical professionals from across the world since 1989. This world class conference brings acupuncture practitioners, massage therapists, students, and professors together to exchange industry information in a beautiful retreat setting at the Catamaran Resort and Spa in San Diego, California. Paci?c Symposium has consistently delivered cutting edge speakers at the forefront of the integrative health community, and this year is no exception. Giovanni Maciocia, Lillian Bridges, Arnaud Versluys, Shoji Kobayashi, Jef- frey Yuen, and Matt Callison are some of the widely respected experts who will present seminars and lead interactive workshops covering a myriad of timely Oriental medicine topics. From fertility, facial reading and diagnosis, Qi Gong, and aging, to traditional Tui Na massage, there will be something for everyone. Paci?c Symposium is proud to pres- ent Pete Egoscue as this years Keynote Speaker. Egoscue will discuss how he developed his unique therapy method that relieves chronic pain and encourages peak physical per- formance for the young, the old, the athlete, and the non-athlete. Egoscues method is based on the bodys functional design - or posture. Known as The Posture Guy, Egos- cue is the author of six books and has been successfully helping people relieve them- selves of chronic pain for over thirty years. We look forward to sharing another illuminat- ing week with you at Paci?c Symposium 2012!
