Acupressure Massage Therapy
Acupressure massage therapy uses acupuncture points to release tension, increase the circulation of blood, and heighten the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same healing pressure points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure therapy uses gentle but firm finger pressure. Advantages of integrating massage therapy with acupressure trigger points include relieving pain, trauma, burnout, backaches, headaches, insomnia and maintaining good health through self-care. By relaxing the body and relieving stress, acupressure strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness.
Shiatsu Massage Therapy
A form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan, Shiatsu massage uses kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques and is performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing. Shiatsu is one of the main therapies within the larger profession of Asian Bodywork Therapy.
Shiatsu is a non-invasive therapy that helps reduce stress and contributes to overall wellbeing. It has both preventative and remedial effects. With a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal, and emotional conditions, Shiatsu massage reduces muscle stiffness and gently stimulates the skin, which helps digestion and influences the nervous system. Shiatsu is used to treat a wide range of chronic conditions, such as headaches, PMS, digestive disorders, fatigue, insomnia, fibromyalgia, stress, anxiety, and musculoskeletal pain, including low back, neck, and joint pain.
Many of our clients find Shiat-su massage being gentle but penetrating at the deep tissue level. Come try Shiatsu today!
