Chi Nei Tsang
This therapeutic treatment focuses on the abdominal area and internal organs to start. Gentle yet deep massage techniques promote the flow of blood & lymph, replenishing tissue & cells, releasing knots and tangles, and stimulating the internal organs to work more efficiently.
Chi Nei Tsang addresses all body systems like: digestive, lymphatic, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, nervous, urinary, immune and reproductive, as well as related unprocessed emotions. Chi Nei Tsang helps the body to get rid of stagnation that obstructs the proper functioning of internal organs & bodily systems, while restructuring & strengthening the body by addressing visceral imbalances. It is excellent therapeutic treatment for:
• Improving digestion, absorption & elimination
• Treating chronic pain in the back, neck, shoulder, arms, pelvis, legs and feet
• Regaining health, vitality & energy
Chi Nei Tsang is a therapeutic form of massage, in which an important element is to teach you about your body & how to keep it healthy & happy. This means it is not a treatment that takes place in 100% silence. There will be some talking during the treatment: you can be asked to give additional info during the session depending on what comes up, you can be asked to give feedback, and you will receive information on what is being worked on and feedback & tips on what you can do yourself to stay healthy and promote health of specific organs & body systems.
Chi Nei Tsang Healing Harmony Tok Sen
Healing Harmony Chi Nei Tsang integrates the use of wooden tools during the treatment, for an even deeper impact on the muscle - tendon meridians. If things get blocked or stuck there, the cells of the body are not nourished enough with oxygen & nutrients, finally causing pain, stiffness and even immovability.
The use of specifically designed wooden tools creates harmonious vibrations of movement & sound that work deep into the bodily tissues. This releases deep, stubborn tensions in the abdominal area, chest, shoulders, back, neck, arms & legs.
The rhythmic waves of sound & movement dissolve blockages, working deeply through fascia & muscles, penetrating hardened tissue and softening it. Excellent therapeutic treatment for:
▪ Releasing tension & pain
▪ Increasing flexibility
▪ Healthy flow of energy, blood & lymph fluids
▪ Promoting relaxation & restful sleep
Cupping Massage Therapy
Cupping Massage Therapy eliminates stagnation in the meridians. This stagnation causes blockages & adhesions, resulting in pain, and limited movement, decreasing mobility & flexibility.
During Cupping Massage Therapy both silicone & plastic cups are used. These are placed on the skin to create a vacuum that draws the skin & the underlying tissues into the cup. This activates the circulation of blood & lymphatic fluids. Oxygenated blood nourishes the cells with nutrients while simultaneously stimulating the discharge of waste & toxins.
Because of the deep tissue effects of Cupping Massage Therapy it can be used for many complaints & ailments. It supports the relaxation of muscles & other tissues, stimulates the circulation of blood & lymphatic fluids while at the same time eliminating stagnation, detoxifying tissues, eventually resulting in reduction or elimination of experienced pain and improved movability & flexibility.
After the session red, blue, grey or even black marks can be seen on the skin. These are toxins drawn to the surface of the skin, for the body to discharge in the days following the therapeutic cupping treatment. These marks can be visible for 3 – 5 days post treatment, depending on the intensity of the mark & your overall health condition. The different reactions of the skin & the variety of colors shown in the marks tell the story of your overall health, underlying problems & conditions. This will be discussed with you at the end of the Cupping Massage Therapy session.
Gua Sha Therapy
Gua Sha Therapy is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is usually translated as ‘scraping away’ (Gua) of ‘diseases concerning stagnated energy’ (Sha).
Gua Sha Therapy activates the flow of energy through the meridians, boosts the immune system, enhances the detoxification mechanisms of the body & stimulates circulation. By triggering & activating the self-healing capacity of the body, your overall health & energy improves by leaps & bounds, leaving you feeling fresh, fit, clear & energetic.
During Gua Sha Therapy a special Gua Sha tool is placed on the oiled skin, and moved across the skin in one direction. Discoloration of the skin appears in those areas where stagnated or blocked energy is located in the underlying tissues. The colors can vary from light to dark red, blue, purple, or black. The colors tells the story of underlying issues & these will be discussed with you at the end of the session.
The discolorations & marks on the skin can be visible for 3 – 7 days, depending on the intensity of the marks & your overall health condition. With consecutive Gua Sha treatments, the marks & discoloration become less intense. This means that the body has been releasing toxic waste & energetic stagnation, and is restoring its natural state of health.
