Gua Sha Professional Tools
New composite material! Gua Sha Professional Tools feature an integrated handle for unmatched comfort and control. Our light and ergo friendly design takes care of the clinician’s hand and provides the perfect shapes. The highly sensitive symmetrically beveled treatment edge allows ambidextrous use. Our new composite material is lighter with increased rigidity for enhanced palpation. The hollow handle decreases weight and unexpectedly magnifies sound - in a quiet setting one can actually hear as well as feel soft tissue abnormalities. Tools are impervious to chemical damage. Choose any skin lubricant and disinfect with any cleaning solution. All tools come with a lifetime guarantee and no hassle return policy. Tools are available to clinicians and individuals who desire a clinical grade instrument. Locally made in Kent, Ohio USA.
