    Gua sha literally means "to scrape for
    cholera" in Chinese (more loosely, "to
    scrape the fever") is an ancient medical
    treatment.
    Gua sha involves repeated pressured strokes
    over lubricated skin with a smooth edge.
    Commonly a ceramic Chinese soup spoon
    was used.
    The gua sha technique is most commonly
    used to :
    . Reduce fever.
    . Treat fatigue caused by exposure to
    heat.               (often to treat heat-stroke) or
    cold.

    and          emphysema.
