TREATMENT TECHNIQUES

An Mo - The general relaxation massage (An Mo) was first practiced instinctively by blind men and later passed down as a family tradition. A variety of hand techniques consisting of grasping, pressing, penetrating, rubbing and rolling are used to stimulate the chi energy system, acupressure points, and energy meridians/channels - which in turn affects the physical body.

Tui Na - One of the oldest developed massage system, Tui Na utilizes pushing and grabbing to treat soft tissue damage, joint and tendon diseases and internal disorders.

Wai Qi Liao Fa - In China, scientists are currently conducting research on the effects of external chi healing (Wai Qi Liao Fa) on cancer patients. By projecting their external chi, Qigong doctors have thus far achieved remarkable results in speeding up the recovery process.

Shiatsu - Developed in Japan in the early twentieth century, Shiatsu translates into the word shi (finger) and atsu (pressure). Also known as acupressure, Shiatsu applies pressure through the fingers, thumb and palm to particular points of the body to ease aches, pains, fatigue and tension by stimulating the body's natural powers of recuperation.

Working the same points as acupuncture, Shiatsu helps promote general good health by strengthening the internal organs and by preventing blockage of energy in the body. Athletes, in particular, utilize Shiatsu for a faster recovery from injuries.

Reiki - Also developed in Japan in the early twentieth century, Reiki is an energetic healing art form which utilizes and stimulates the bodies inate healing abilities.

Jin Shin Tao Acupressure (TM) - Jin Shin Tao Acupressure (TM) is another form of acupressure. Incorporating Japanese meditation techniques and dietary principles, Jin Shin is a form of connecting acupressure points or "Tsubo" in a light, orderly fashion. Gentle, but firm pressure, is used in order to release and direct chi flow.

PsychoAcoustic Healing - Often referred to as "Sound Healing", psychoacoustic therapy is the use of music, Tibetan and Gregorian chants, or specific sound frequencies generated by Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, or tuning forks to impart vibrational resonance to your body and energy meridians to promote release of tension and pain and to promote well being and health. Psychoacoustic therapy is often beneficial for resolution of sleeping disorders, depression, and tension.
