The concepts of Qi and meridians are ancient Chinese theories and do not translate exactly into English. The most common translation of Qi is ‘energy’. It is this ‘energy’ that courses through channels of the body and connect the physical structures with the internal organs. In Chinese medical theory, pain and discomfort can be caused by a deficiency or blockage of Qi.

These therapies are based on the application of pressure to certain areas of the body, such as Acupuncture points, trigger points and tender areas, in order to balance energy flow throughout the body. Gentle stretches and rotations may also be implemented as a way to help release stagnant Qi from the joints. Treatments are performed fully clothed and require no oils. 

The integration of physical massage with Chinese medical theory allows both Tui Na and Shiatsu to effectively assist with a wide range of complaints such as:

  • Headaches

  • Neck & shoulder issues

  • Back Pain

  • Hip issues

  • Muscle stiffness & pain

  • Digestive issues

  • Menstrual pain

  • Stress/Anxiety

  • Sleep issues

  • Circulatory, respiratory, lymphatic and hormonal systems

To add further benefit, remedial massage may be applied to specific areas of the body requiring attention or as a follow up treatment for added results.
