Chinese Tui Na Massage is very ancient, this traditional Chinese massage technique was developed as early as 3000 years ago. It is one of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, the others being acupuncture, Qi Gong, and Chinese herbal medicine. It focus on balancing the movement of Qi or energy through the body by using gentle to firm acupressure hand and finger movements.
Qi - is believed to be the vital energy or force that animates living beings. Qi flows through meridians, pathways on the surface of the body that also connect internally to vital organs. It can be blocked by poor diet, lack of exercise or improper exercise, and rampant emotions. Massaging these points helps remove blockages and restore the free flow of energy.
The Chinese Acupressure and Acupuncture use the same pressure points, but the difference between the two is that the Acupressure uses finger pressure, while Acupuncture employs needles. When the acupressure points throughout the body are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing.
During the massage, you don't need to remove your clothing. Our male therapist will first massage your muscles using a variety of stroking movements, including compression, kneading, rubbing, pressing and percussion. Movements are repeated until the muscles being massaged are softer and more flexible. Then the male therapist will massage the acupressure points, using his thumbs and fingers to press, vibrate, rub or knead each acupressure point. Sometimes, the therapist may also use traditional liniments to enhance the effect of the massage treatment. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, Acupressure Therapy can help to release tension, increase circulation, reduce pain, and develop spirituality and vibrant health.
