(Chinese Medical Massage)
Acupressure is therapeutic Chinese massage. It works on the same principles as acupuncture, except instead of using needles, the practitioner will apply pressure with the hands to stimulate certain acupuncture points.
Acupressure is an effective method of treatment for a wide range of conditions. It works by improving blood circulation and repairing tissue damage throughout the body.
Acupressure can stimulate nerves, ease tension, stiffness and pain in muscles and joints, repair lymph damage and induce relaxation. Acupressure is a Chinese medical massage that is carried out by qualified TCM practitioners. If you are seeking healing treatment from your massage then this is for you.
This treatment is based on a theory of invisible pathways called channels that span over the entire body.
The current flowing through these channels is Qi life energy and underlies everything in the universe.
Everything that lives and moves and breathes, is believed to do so, because Qi flows through it.
Acupressure is an effective method of improving blood circulation and repairing tissue damage throughout the body.
Via nerve stimulation acupressure can induce relaxation and improve skin tone, ease tension in muscles and joints,
repair facial lymph damage and generally tone the body.
For this reason it is often used as a facial beauty therapy.
In the cupping procedure a glass jar is applied to the patient's skin and as the pressure of the jar is reduced (either by heat or suction) vital energy is freed which helps the body to work more efficiently. Cupping is particularly effective in improving blood circulation, performing deep tissue repair and treating areas of the body that have been affected by pain.
These herbal combinations are most commonly used to treat, hormonal disturbances, infections, breathing disorders and can be either brewed as
a tea or ingested in tablet form.
The main strength of Chinese herbal medicine lies in strengthening the immune system, which builds up resistant to disease.
