    How to treat perimenopause with Gua sha!

    How to treat perimenopause with Gua sha!

    Gua sha can be very effective in a clinical situation and this is something I know because I've used it in my clinic for decades. One condition it has proved useful with is with controlling the symptoms of perimenopause. In this episode, I look at a study which explores how to use Gua sha for this condition and also how to see the body through the lens of nature - in this case, the movement of a sunflower. I give detailed descriptions of the Gua sha treatment used in the protocol so that you can follow it and add a few tips of my own.

    Facial Gua sha for eye bags and dark rings

    Facial Gua sha for eye bags and dark rings

    Anyone can scrape around the eyes with a tool but it takes special skill to really understand the body-wide context of facial features like eye bags and dark rings. In this episode, Clive looks at what these features mean both in the local context of your face and also how they stem from circulatory and muscular relationships within the body. Chinese medicine is all about patterns and motions and Facial Gua sha is no different. He shows you how eye bags are closely related to your stomach and digestion, and how dark rings are connected to the kidneys. He also explains how these are treated and the cautions of applying temperature to the face.
