asian bodywork

Healing with touch may be the oldest and most simple form of health care. Asian bodywork differs from other forms of massage because it is used to treat specific illnesses of an internal nature as well as musculoskeletal ailments.  

It is essential that the practitioner have a clear understanding of Chinese medicine's rationale.  Within that context, the body worker applies varying degrees of rhythmic pressure to balance qi and blood as they flow to the organs, glands, muscles and nerves throughout the body. Additional techniques might include muscle stretching, gliding, percussion, “push-and-pull” and other structural releases. It is an excellent means of stimulating injury recovery and treating fatigued, overworked muscles. Asian bodywork is especially effective in relieving acute and chronic pain, and it can also help to alleviate chronic conditions such as insomnia, constipation, headaches, menstrual disorders, emotional disharmonies and the tension associated with stress. It is often the first choice of treatment for infants and children.
