Therefore, it should strictly follow the operation specifications or follow the doctor's instructions. It is not allowed to operate at home at will to avoid accidents.

4. Avoid wind and keep warm when treating scraping. When the room temperature is low, the exposed parts should be minimized. When the temperature is high in summer, scraping is not allowed at the fan or convection wind. When scraping, the sweat holes of the skin will be opened. In case of wind chill, the evil Qi can be directly released through the pores, which will not only affect the curative effect of scraping, but also cause new diseases due to the feeling of wind chill.
5. After scraping treatment, in order to avoid the invasion of wind and cold, it is necessary to wait for the skin pores to close and return to their original state before bathing, generally about 3 hours.

Drinking salt water and sugar water can supplement the body fluid on the one hand, on the other hand, it can accelerate the metabolism of the body, promote the discharge of body waste, and strengthen the effect of scraping.
