The Gua sha project is based on providing quality Gua sha training programs to disadvantaged communities in countries with underfunded healthcare. Gua sha is an ideal community-based technique which is low-cost and efficient in treating a range of common ailments and is well-suited to a teaching-oriented self-sufficient model.
