In this episode we go into a unique modality that has been transforming the lives of dogs and their owners alike - Paw Sha.

Paw Sha, a fascinating fusion of ancient wisdom and modern canine care, is the star of the show today. Derived from the time-honored art of Gua Sha massage in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it offers an avenue for optimizing your dog's health and well-being from the comfort of your own home.

Our special guest, Dr. Tori, leads us on an enlightening journey into the world of Paw Sha. As a skilled practitioner and an advocate of holistic pet wellness, Dr. Tori has not only used this technique on her own beloved dogs but has also witnessed its incredible benefits in her animal patients.

Gua Sha, which translates to "to scrape" (Gua) and "disease or sand" (Sha), has long been recognized for its ability to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance lymphatic flow in humans. However, Dr. Tori introduces us to the intriguing concept of a gentler touch when applying Paw Sha to our furry friends.

Learn how this gentle yet effective method is used to address a multitude of issues in dogs, ranging from chronic pain and arthritis to mobility challenges and post-surgery recovery. Discover how Paw Sha promotes relaxation and provides comfort to dogs dealing with various ailments.

About Paw Sha

Paw Sha is a modality you can use at home on your own dog to optimize their health! Paw Sha is based on Gua Sha massage, a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that relieves pain, decreases inflammation, and helps with lymphatic flow.

A Gua Sha tool is used as an extension of your hand to glide over your pet’s skin and fur to promote healing. Gua means “to scrape” and Sha means “disease or sand”, and when used on humans it is a firm scraping motion.

In our animal patients, a softer touch is used to create the effect we want. Paw Sha is used in treating animals with chronic pain, arthritis, mobility issues, post-surgery recovery, improve
relaxation, and many other ailments.

Dr. Tori has used this technique on her own dogs, patients, and taught clients how to perform this technique at home with great success!
