The Oldest Form of Massage …

Tui Na is an ancient form of Chinese medical massage. It is a vigorous massage, that also involves energy work using the meridans and stretching like in Thai massage.

Don Hughes is our acupuncturist. He combines Tui Na Massage with Acupuncture for a treatment that addresses your needs. Some people like the needles, some don’t. So he modifies the treatment to what works for you. Don starts with assessing what is going on in your body.

You may have pain in the shoulder and neck, but following it’s source you find it’s associated with the gall bladder meridian, so he addresses that. He follows up with recommendations of a treatment plan for your healing. Sometimes it includes herbs and other remedies, or suggestions for qigong or stretching you can do on your own.

Chinese Medical Massage (known as Tui Na)

Tui na is the oldest known form of massage. It is a vigorous massage which involves energy work using the meridans and stretching like in Thai massage.

It is generally a clothes on massage, but can also be adapted to oil massage. This massage focuses on flowing between the different parts of the body to increase circulation. It moves from more surface to deeper with different hand forms, brushing for the skin, na, grasping for the muscles, an, pressing for the blood, and mo, polishing for the bones.

We also offer Chinese Medical Massage combined with Acupuncture for the same price.

Chinese Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a technique used to stimulate Qi at specific points on the body, usually by inserting thin needles through the skin.

Acupuncture stimulates the release of the body’s natural painkillers and affects areas in the brain involved in processing pain.

It may help ease pain, both chronic and acute, including low-back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, tenitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and more. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches. 

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral is a type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column.

This noninvasive technique uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. It is able to relieve migraines, trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash, neck and shoulder pain and more.
