Regular therapeutic massage can be an important part of your health and wellness plan. Massage is used to encourage the natural flow of Qi and blood throughout muscles and the body’s meridians to alleviate pain, remove blockages, harmonise the mind & body and improve general wellbeing.
Relaxation massage is a full-body oil massage. This includes your back, neck, face, shoulders, arms, legs, feet and hands. The primary purpose is to help you relax using light pressure and smooth, gliding strokes. During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue. It is a great way to alleviate emotional and physical stress.
Tui Na is a Chinese remedial massage that works in a similar way to acupuncture but without the use of needles. This technique stimulates acupressure points and meridians to help relieve muscular pain & spasms, joint stiffness, arthritic pain, relieve stress and promote overall health and wellbeing.
Gua Sha involves the use of tools such as spoons to scrape the skin along the meridians, channels and points on the skin surface. This process improves blood circulation to muscles, tissues and organs directly beneath the surface treated to help stiffness, pain and mobility. It also helps restore metabolic processes by improving nutrient delivery and waste removal systems of the body and stimulating immune function.
