Massage Treatments

Tui Na Massage Tui Na is an ancient form of Chinese physical therapy approximately 2000 years old using traction, massage and manipulation in conjunction with the stimulation of acupressure points. It provides stress relief and treats, or complements the treatment of, many conditions including musculoskeletal disorders and chronic stress-related disorders of the digestive, respiratory, and reproductive systems.

Shiatsu Massage Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork similar to acupressure and acupuncture that concentrates on unblocking the flow of Qi (energy) and restoring balance in the body in order to promote self-healing. Shiatsu massage treats common psychological and physical complaints such as depression, anxiety, nausea, stiffness, headaches, arthritis, cramps, or pulled muscles.
