Method/How It Works

The Chinese massage method is thousands of years old. It focuses on qi (life force energy, pronounced chi). This method of massage eases unblocks and stimulates the flow of qi around the body. 

Another key point of the massage is that it works on your meridian network. The meridians distribute energy evenly throughout the body. This means that when energy flow in a Meridian becomes blocked or stops flowing disease can occur. Consequently, by pressing specific acupressure points found along a meridian we can affect muscular tension, blood circulation and the body's life energy to promote healing.
