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 ;)
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 ;)
