The patient experiences immediate changes in stiffness, pain and mobility. Normal metabolic processes are restored by the movement of fluids as nutrients are carried to the tissues and metabolic wastes are carried away ----- good circulation ensure the normal metabolism as well as the self-healing system.
In the treatment, special oil is put on a particular area of the skin where after the therapist starts “scraping” the area with a “scraper” (a specially designed instrument of jade or horn). Very soon the skin show red spots ( indicating the locations of sick muscles ). As a matter of fact, the red spots mean some toxins or wastes coming out from the sick tissues.
