We all know that the process of losing weight is not an easy one. However, certain techniques out there such as Gua Sha (also referred to as guasha) can make the process much smoother.
This technique that involves using a tool to scrape the skin to relieve tension and pain has also gained quite a bit of popularity for weight loss. Are there any grounds for it – and if so, how can this technique help you lose weight? This article will serve as your guide.
Weight loss without any changes to your lifestyle and your diet cannot happen miraculously – but if you mix it with Gua Sha, it has shown to be quite effective. To put it simply, when you scrape the tool across your skin, it will allow your blood to flow more smoothly through the muscle and the tissues – reducing the inflammation.
If the problem areas are tackled correctly, this change in blood flow will pretty much activate your body, allowing you to burn more calories as you are going through the day. These changes in your blood flow can also improve the way in which your body digests the food.
The scraping movement of Gua Sha will also help smooth the skin by breaking down the fat buildups causing cellulite. It will improve the texture of your skin, toning it while distributing the fat evenly throughout your body, giving that slimming effect. Since the fat is no longer trapped, it will be much easier for you to shed it off as the skin will tighten.
Provided you use it together with a healthy diet and lifestyle, Gua Sha can be very effective for weight loss. People use it mostly to get rid of fat around the belly and thighs, as that is the place where cellulite tends to build up the most. It also works with your face wrinkles on the same basis.
Plus, by boosting the blood flow around the abdominal area and enabling lymphatic drainage, a Gua Sha massage can help reduce your appetite and improve your digestion.
