What is Chinese Massage Therapy?
Traditional Chinese Massage, often called remedial massage, uses the acupressure and acupuncture points of the body in order to improve the flow of Qi (Chi) around the body.
Most ailments in the body are caused by blockages to the flow of Qi which results in pain, stiffness and other physical symptoms which can be significantly relieved by massage.
Treatment can cause rapid improvement in certain conditions; however it is more likely that treatment must occur over a period of time. The time frame for treatment can only be assessed as treatment continues. Some medical conditions may require a doctor’s permission before treatment can begin. There may also be cases where TCM cannot be used until a condition has been rectified by normal medical treatment.
Meridian Massage manipulates Trigger Points to resolve blockages to blood flow. Cupping and Scraping may also be used to remove toxins from the body. Herbal medicine can be used to naturally relieve soft tissue and muscle stiffness thus alleviating pain. Usually this process requires ongoing treatment. All massage is non-invasive.
What is Combination Acupuncture/Massage?
We now have introduced the next level of treatment for all those really difficult problems. Acupuncture or Dry Needling combined with Massage is able to reach those spots that Remedial Massage alone just can't get to and by combining both methods of treatment your relief is assured.
Combined Acupuncture and Massage can improve circulation, joint range-of-motion and flexibility. It can reduce many common ailments such as stress, muscle tightness, aches and pains - even anxiety and depression.
Remedial Massage along with Acupuncture, can provide a remedy to a large number of joint and muscle injuries and illnesses.
Our practice is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
