Chinese Tui Na massage uses rhythmic compression along energy channels of the
body, as well as a variety of techniques that manipulate and lubricate the joints. It directly affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing “acupoints” throughout the body.
Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which vacuum cups are applied to the skin to achieve a therapeutic effect. Cupping can be used to treat muscle pain, drain excess toxins and stimulate blood circulation.
Gua Sha is a healing massage therapy that uses a smooth-edged tool to repeatedly scrape an area of lubricated skin. The goal is to intentionally create transitory therapeutic petechiae called ‘Sha’. The Sha represents leakage of the blood in the subcutaneous tissue (beneath the skin). Raising Sha opens pores, improves blood flow and removes blood stagnation. A single Gua Sha treatment can lead to immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, cough or nausea. It also works well for acute and chronic organ disorders.
*Please be aware that the Sha appears like bruising and will resolve within a week time. Suggest not to swimming or exposure to wind and cold after the treatment.
