Gua Sha Demonstration at LAVA Forensic Science Seminar at CSLA 

I had the great privilege of being a presenter at the Forensic Science Lab at CSLA. Many cultures implement the use of gua sha and cupping to help reduce pain and fever. The resulting temporary marks can look alarming to someone untrained and medical personnel, law enforcement, and teachers may mistake it for a sign of child or elder abuse. I was able to demonstrate cupping, moxibustion, and gua sha with both buffalo horn and ceramic soup spoon on Esotouric/LAVA facilitator Richard Schave to help seminar attendees better understand the procedure and be able to identify the accompanying temporary marks of this therauptic modality.
