第一次的刮痧/Skin scraping

当初不懂是不是没好好坐月的关系,我的腰骨时不时都会酸痛。。加上自己顾孩子,做家务等等,都要弯腰所以有时真的是酸到不行!
还好每个月的全身按摩有帮助到一点。我很享受这种按摩,哈哈!如果可以我想每个礼拜去一次!xD

每次帮我按摩的是一个专业马来aunty, 力道够,人也很nice,而且价钱对我来说还算公道!不过由于近来她很忙所以一直约不到适合的时间。不过我的腰实在顶不顺了所以就帮衬另一间按摩中心,帮我做的是个中国阿姨。她一按到我的背就说我很累,肌肉紧绷!所以建议我做刮痧~ 

惜肉的我从来不敢做刮痧,看到朋友每次做完皮肤那种红肿,要等几天才能消,我告诉自己一定不会去尝试!
不过这天我却有胆量说ok! :p
结果。。。

I enjoy my monthly body massage with this professional malay aunty but this time around, she was too occupied and we couldn't find a suitable time for a massage session, but my backache is killing me! So I visited a Chinese massage center at town.

The massause said I have very stiff shoulder and back once she massaged my back, and recommended me to do gua sha (skin scraping). I always say NO to skin scraping cause of the pain, and most importantly the red marks and blemishes that appeared after that! But this day, I've actually decided to try, for the very first time ;)

End up.......



(好好的按摩不就好了嘛,干吗要拿皮来痛!)


到今天(第3天了)那些红印还在,不过我庆幸自己当时做了对的决定,哈哈!虽然过程有点痛,然后看到自己的背变成这样很心疼,不过这次的刮痧的确让我松了很多!腰酸改善了很多!

上网找了些资料,知道说刮痧能够促进代谢排出毒素,舒筋通络和调整阴阳。看来我体内的毒素好多!还是也许第一次做所以排出的毒素自然而然多?

问我还做不做刮痧?Erm, 应该会!;))

A good skin scraping is able to improve circulation and expel toxics, at the same time relax the muscles. Guess I have lots of toxic inside by looking at the photo! :0
The process is a bit painful but I am glad I tried it. Can feel my backache improved a lot these few days! Will sure try skin scraping again, if needed ;)

  7. 红印难看我倒不介意反正不会翻开背部给人家看的,而且几天就会消掉了,但是还是很佩服你刮痧,直到刮痧很好,我的爸爸弟弟们也常有刮痧,但是就觉得好痛好痛所以从来没有尝试过。
    我觉得坐月还真的很重要调理好自己的身子,至少*touchwood*过后我没有腰酸背痛这事情>_<

    1. 哈哈,当然不会开背给别人看,不过因为我惜肉嘛,加上有时会穿露背/无袖衣所以一直都不敢去刮痧~
      嗯,真的,坐月子对女人来说很重要!

  8. Whoaa!!! Your body was very heaty and luckily you went to get it done. When our back feels ache and sourish, it means we have serious problems looming. So it is advisable to scrape our back or do cupping. I am a very firm believer with such ancient treatments of scraping and foot reflexology. If we feel pain under our soles during the foot reflexology, it means we have bigger problems inside our organs and need to get our feet rubbed & pressed often until pain is gone which many take 2-3 weeks. It can prevent 1001 sickness including heart disease and cancer. Best of all, the back scraping can indirectly help to improve and enhance our face & skin too!! Aha!

    1. Yep, I guess my body is really heaty! Now I know how effective it is, will sure go again next time, despite all the pain and money..
      Foot reflexology is very important as well! I like foot massage too!

  9. Honestly the last time I went to a massage the Chinese meseaur also asked if I wanna do this and I straight away said no because I know my back will look damn ugly...
    Really? Really that good ahhhh???

  10. hello Hayley, feeling "above" the weather today?? i bet, because surely you were so busy during the past weekend for your BIL's wedding until you recovered without even noticing it.. but poor lah, your turn was over and now it's Aden's turn pulak.. hope whatever virus will leave your home soon :)

    1. i have also not tried 刮痧 and 針灸 and 拔罐 before.. never have thought about them and even if they come across my mind, i probably won't go and try.. so i salute your courage to take up that 刮痧.. somemore when i read that it's a 中國大媽, i am even more taken aback!! haha, you know lah, 中國大媽 woh, she certainly may not be somebody who is very 溫柔!!

      Delete
    2. and looking at your back, i gotta agree with you lah, surely 心疼 when seeing those bruises.. but then i supposed you actually think they help and will go and do it again.. so which one is better?? 刮痧 or urut tradisi?? so far, i have only tried the 盲人按摩 only but have not been going for a long time already..

      Delete
    3. yes, i have heard a lot about the benefits of 刮痧 拔罐 針灸.. i sure stored a lot of toxins inside my body lah, maybe i can seriously think about going for them.. read what Twilight Man commented above, hmmm, maybe it's good to get rid of the toxins inside our body, so that we can be healthier and also look healthier..

      Delete
    4. but then, ladies actually can take up more serious level of pain compared to guys.. i am afraid i will keep on screaming and shouting if i go 刮痧.. or perhaps 拔罐 would be better?? i actually have always think of going to 針灸減肥 only~~ :p

      Delete
    5. I have recovered but poor Aden still down with flu :(

      Haha, sometimes being not too 温柔 is not that bad la, depends on what situation is that, like in this case, if too 温柔 then not effective lo!

      Erm, both has own pros and cons la! But have to say 刮痧 is really effective!

      Yes, you can consider trying one of those method, and see the result!

      Haha right, woman can tahan more pain than man, take labor pain as example, hehe!

  11. 我现在的腰也是不好使,弯不到几分钟就开始酸酸麻麻的,所以我偶尔需要去推拿和做物理治疗。那些治疗师每次都说我的腰无力,元气不足!>_<

    哇!你的背部做完刮痧后很触目惊心,不过最重要还是你问题减轻了。刮痧之后会一直排风的对吗?

    1. 嗯,腰部酸痛的确不可忽略~

      对,的确很有效~ Erm,一点点啦~

    1. 对,我算过了,大概4天后就完全消了~

  14. Wah, you dare to try skin scraping. I don't dare to do that at all not because of the pain but because I don't want my skin to be all bruised. I prefer cupping therapy which uses the same healing principle as this (I think).

    1. I have the same concern but then if it is effective, then have to try also~ Cupping is less painful but will also leave marks!

  18. 我是完全不能刮痧的人,因为我脊椎突出症,骨头偏向外,刮痧会咕噜咕噜的声响反而是人家不敢刮,不是我怕痛。最重要会好,背部太重要了。
