Swedish Massage

Acupressure Massage
Acupressure Massage is a  massage that combines the techniques of a swedish massage with manipulation of acupuncture points. 
The points chosen are determined by your condition, diagnosis and TCM principles. 
The pressure applied to these chosen points release tension, promote circulation of blood and energy.
An Acupressure Massage is healing,relaxing.and rejuvenating.

Tui-Na (Chinese Massage)

Tui-Na involves manipulation of skin, muscles and other tissue.

It is performed in a rithmetic manner and usually combined with other forms of massage. 

Cupping Massage 

Cupping Massage uses the Chinese Fire Cupping technique to create a suction under  special glass cups . The cups are then gently moved over the skin, back and forth. By using a sliding movement we can treat a larger area (ex, the back). This way of cupping will expand  blood vessels, release tension, remove 'knots', draw toxins upwards for better elimination. It can be compared to a deep tissue massage

Hot Stone Massage

Heated Basalt Stones are used to relax muscles groups, target stiff joints, promote circulation and bring a deep state of relaxation.
