Gua Sha; Leg day.

I received an interesting email this week about my shoulder problems. The person who emailed me was nailed from behind by a car moving at 45 MPH while he was sitting at a stoplight. He had a lot of pain in his left shoulder that went on for many months. A friend of his suggested that he try acupuncture before the usual treatments, which he did with no results. He also tried another technique (which was performed by his acupuncturist) called “Gua Sha”. Gua Sha is a East Asian healing technique that “removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes.” His shoulder is now pain-free. I’m wondering if any of you have tried this technique and, if so, what your experiences are with it. I’m willing to try anything to improve my shoulders at this point, and this looks very interesting.

It’s leg day and, as usual, I’m running late. I’ve been getting up an hour later than I usually do (which is fine, because Sunday we roll the clocks back anyway), and the extra sleep is doing me a lot of good. I need all the energy I can get these days!
