Also known as Western Gua-Sha treatment, Graston Therapy uses a surgical-grade stainless steel tool to help ease the tension in the muscles and damaged soft tissues. This is accomplished by using the tool to apply controlled pressure over the skin, breaking up scar tissue. This technique is especially useful for office workers who have chronic tightness in the neck and lower back, and is also helpful for athletes with joint and muscle pain. Usually patients experience an immediate response to treatment with less tension, tightness, and pain.
