I'm author of The Book of Oriental Medicine, Gua sha: A Complete Self treatment Guide and Facial Gua Sha: A Step-by-step guide to a natural facelift.

Who is this online Gua sha course course for?

This Gua sha program is for those who treat or want to treat people with Gua sha - including health and body professionals like massage therapists, naturopaths and physical therapists, but also anyone who wants a thorough knowledge to treat other people safely and effectively. 

I'm so glad I found this Clive's course! I read his book a long time ago and it was great to treat myself but I didn't use it much with my clients. Now it's awesome to learn more on how I can treat my clients and I can't wait to use guasha on them. Thanks.

I really enjoyed the course, and I'm looking forward to putting it all into practice. I already cannot believe the results I'm getting. It's so cool!

Rolando Carlson, USA

I though the program content was organised well and clear. It's certainly thorough. There are tasks to do and tests to complete. And it's great to have an exam at the end. The Chinese medicine is new to me so it took me some time to get it but it makes so much sense. Now, whenever anyone has any pain, I'm the most popular family member!

LEVEL 1 EXAM

What Gua sha can do on a Personal level

Clive teaching a Gua sha course at a Spanish University

"But I'm not sure whether to enrol or not"

Yes, of course. Unless you've read any of my books or seen any of my videos, you won't know who I am. And why should you trust your hard earned money to complete stranger? I get it. And I agree. I sometimes do online training with acupuncture (it's difficult to travel sometimes from my base in North Africa) and I have to be really sure that the course is worth it as they aren't cheap. This is why I offer a 15-day refund guarantee so that if you are not completely happy with the course during the first 15 days after purchase, you can contact me and get a full refund. No quibbles and no catches. 

So allow me to tell you something first on a personal level about the years on my Japanese island to show you how useful this knowledge was to me and my family. Have you ever seen a picture in a magazine and it looked like your idea of paradise? Maybe it had a deserted beach, palm trees, the sun setting. And have you ever thought about giving everything up and just going somewhere exactly like that picture?

 

Well we did. We lived in paradise for two years with giant turtles, wild monkeys, ancient forests and yes a deserted beach with palm trees (If you're interested, I have a website on it www.yakumonkey.com).

This is the actual island

It was here that I really learned the value of Gua sha. With two children under 10 years old who hated needles of any kind (I'm an acupuncturist, remember), my wife and I kept them strong and healthy the whole time and helped them through things like stomach upsets, colds, coughs and stiff necks with Gua sha. My wife (she's the one on the front cover of my Gua sha books) became a baker and I, a crew member on a flying fish boat and so we had our own rather different Gua sha health needs!    

  

I can honestly say that without the knowledge I had, I would have been disempowered in regards to my family's health. Instead we had something real that we could do for each other. Okay I have a whole other bag of tricks having been trained in Chinese medicine and in using needles, cupping, moxa etc, but Gua sha is a treatment I returned to time and again partly because you don't need anything special to do it, you can do it anywhere and it can be so effective if you do it right!

What Gua sha can do on a Professional level

And now something on a professional level. Over the years, I have experimented with Gua sha in my clinic and some of that I put into the 3 books I published. My wife has been a massage therapist for 20 years and she ended up ditching most of the massage techniques she used to use in favor of Gua sha simply because it was more effective and it was what most of the patients in our clinic wanted. We found that people just want to feel better - maybe less pain, maybe more relaxed, maybe less anxious, maybe reduced symptoms. Whatever it is, they want to feel better. They don't have to feel better right there and then but they have to feel like they are on an upward trajectory to wellness. It was like - why waste time doing long treatments when you can get as good or better results in half the time and effort? Well, Gua sha allows you to do this.

When it comes to a being a practitioner, your best asset is your skills. Without the right techniques, it will be very difficult to have a thriving practice. This program will help you acquire just that and is perfect for anyone who wants to combine ancient Chinese wisdom with manual techniques. You will learn the tips, tricks and clinical secrets that took years to develop and how to deeply understand what you are doing and why you are doing it. 

Frequently asked questions

Why should I do your course?

I believe that you shouldn't do Gua sha without good solid training but there are of course many ways you can train. If you decide to take a course - how do you choose it? Maybe you choose a course on price, maybe you choose on content, maybe you choose on a gut feeling. I would hope that you choose this course on what the knowledge I have gained over the years can do to enhance and maximize your skills in Gua sha.

I don't just knock out videos on a whim. I've spent so many years writing books that I approach the content of my videos as I do my written material and try to give the best I can every time. I really want this information to be understood and used. 

 

Let me give you an analogy. If you want to learn tennis, do you takes classes with the baseball coach? Sure, the baseball coach knows how to swing and hit a ball and I'm sure knows about tennis, but in order to play tennis, I mean to really play tennis, you need a tennis coach, right? So likewise with Gua sha - anyone can teach it (and they do) but who do you want to learn with? The one who knows how to do it or the one who knows how you can do it. I think the answer is simple!              


When can I start the course?

You can start anytime you want. You just need to choose your course, pay the appropriate amount and you'll have access to the course right away.


Can I take my time finishing the course?

You can take as long as you like. There is no time limit. When you buy the course, you're buying it for life!


What if I am unhappy with the course?

Being unhappy is not good! So if you contact us within 15 days of buying the course, we will happily offer all your money back. 


Where can I ask questions or get help?

You can contact us at clive@medicinaoriental.org
