Acupressure, Meridian Massage

Acupressure (point holding) along the meridians is a powerful bodywork therapy for releasing pain and inflammation generated from stress, chronic tension patterns and injury.

By stimulating acupressure points along the meridian pathways, we can clear blocks and create a free flow of vital energy (Chi). Five Element Acupressure supports the bodies internal organ systems. Where there is deficiency, I will provide tonifying acupressure. Where there is excess or systems overburdened, I will support an acupressure release.

I offer specific therapies according to your health needs. Including: Moxabustion, Gua Sha treatment and Cupping Therapy. Abdominal Massage in the Chi Nei Tsang tradition is very effective in healing disorders of the digestive tract and reproductive system.

Shiatsu

Shiatsu on the matt

Shiatsu means “finger pressure” in Japanese and is a combination of acupressure and massage therapy techniques. Shiatsu involves conscious breathing and uses hands, forearms, knees and feet to apply pressure to acupressure points to release blockages along the meridians. As specific points are released, the flow of Chi (vital energy) is stimulated throughout the body. Stretches are also incorporated and gently applied during the full-body treatment. Your Shiatsu session will be done on a futon, on the floor and while wearing loose and comfortable clothing.

Deep Tissue & Neuromuscular Massage

Deep Tissue and Acu-Point

Neuromuscular massage therapy combines deep tissue and trigger point techniques for releasing chronic patterns of muscular tension and pain from repetitive use patterns, injury or internal weakness (i.e. fibromyalgia and nervous system imbalances).

Deep tissue uses movements directed across the grain of the muscles (cross-fiber) to release adhesions in the soft tissue. Trigger point therapy targets trigger points (known as “knots”).

Several treatments may be needed depending on the severity of chronic tension or pain. Once the active trigger points are reduced, there will be a great increase in the range of motion, circulation, flexibility and movement in the body.

60 minutes, $80.    75 minute, $90.    90 minute $105.
