Massage is a central pillar to many healing systems.
With acupressure massage you receive the same benefits as traditional massage plus this technique does not just work on muscles and joints, it works with the energy of the body at a deep level.
Acupressure massage has the ability to focus on specific problems, especially chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and skeletal system. As the practitioner senses the client’s body with her hands, she is able to assess the distribution of energy and affect its flow.
From our perspective, pain or disease occurs when there is disharmony in the body. Disharmony occurs when yin/yang energies in the body become imbalanced or when qi (energy) stagnates. Improper diet, lifestyle, overuse, injury or trauma can all lead to disharmony.
Our treatment focuses on correcting these dis-harmonies. It utilizes various massage techniques and passive movements to bring about positive changes in the body.
Our treatments include the use of hand techniques to massage soft tissue (muscles and tendons) imbalances of the body, acupressure techniques to affect the flow of Qi, and stretching techniques to support the muscular-skeletal and ligament relationships.
As with other aspects of Oriental medicine, our treatments are designed to prevent problems, not just correct them.
By keeping the body’s energy in balance, health maintained. This is true not just for physical health but for mental and emotional well-being as well.
