Alex on E! Entertainment Television

This is a clip of me performing Gua Sha (scraping technique) on E! TV special called Radical Hollywood Cures. The conceptual framework of disease in Chinese Medicine is defined as blockage of energy (qi) and blood. Gua Sha is a scraping technique to relieve toxins. It can help remove toxins and heat from patients getting radiotherapy. This is not done in the radiation field. It can also be done for many painful condtions of the back. In the show they were going for the ewww! factor but in reality it does not hurt and does not leave lasting marks.
