Yak horn Gua Sha Instruments

+ $5 Postage and safe packing
Temporarily out of stock

Premium quality and beautiful Gua Sha tools, hand crafted according to their organic contours. Each tool has rounded edges, making application so much more effective and more acceptable for patients, in comparison with machine sliced, cheap, nasty, thin versions flooding on-line buying sites. We went to China recently and were very lucky to find these rare Gua Sha tools. Yak Horn is highly prized for its therapeutic effects and is even more cooling than water buffalo horn. Please note that each instrument is a different colour, shape and size AND most importantly, this horn material is taken from animals that have died naturally. Certainly none have been killed for the purpose of the horns. To read about gua sha therapy, click here.
