Chinese massage

  Tui na is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping . Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist and martial art principles to bring the body to balance. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints (known as the eight gates) to open the body's defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in both the meridians and the muscles. The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points  to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.
 




Ayurvedic massage

  Ayurveda is a natural health care system originating in India that incorporates massage, yoga, meditation and herbal remedies. Ayurvedic massage, also known as Abhyanga is usually performed by massage therapists on the Marma system of vedic energy channels using a heated blend of herbal oils based on the ayurvedic system of constitutions (Kapha, Pitta ,Vata). The key feature which differentiates Ayurvedic Massage from others is the tailoring of the massage oils to the individual’s constitution . The Ayurvedic Masseur determines the category and sub-category based on one's physique, ailments and diet and designs custom Ayurvedic Massage oils.
