Tuina is a form of medical massage characterized by vigorous strokes. Translated loosely as “pushing and pulling”, Tuina is used to stimulate the meridians and move areas of qi stagnation. Smooth movement of qi is what stimulates the body’s healing response and promotes optimal organ function. Treatment may include various forms of massage, acupressure, rocking, and traction. Tuina is well-matched for the treatment of specific musculoskeletal disorders and some chronic stress-related disorders. Tuina is not a mild, sedating and relaxing session, since it tends to be more task focused than other types of bodywork.

Cupping is a modality in which the practitioner creates suction, drawing the skin, superficial muscle and fascia into glass cups that are placed on the body. The cups may be left stationary or moved across lubricated skin. The session feels almost like the reverse of a massage…rather than pressure and pushing, the suction pulls the tissue up and away from the body, loosens muscles, encourages blood flow, and calms the nervous system. Cupping may be used to relieve pain, injury or trauma, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and other symptoms.

Moxibustion is a therapy, derived from the Japanese word mogusa or mo kusa, meaning “burning herb.” Moxa can be found in many forms, from moxa “wool” to moxa pressed into a stick, and is made from the mugwort plant (artemisia vulgaris or artemisia argyii). It is often used to treat conditions considered cold or stagnant in TCM, such as digestive issues, those patients who are weak or depleted, and conditions such as nausea related to chemotherapy. Moxibustion has successfully been used to turn breech babies into a normal head-down position prior to childbirth, and may reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramps when used in conjunction with traditional acupuncture.

Gua Sha is a technique used for treating conditions like tension, pain, and those conditions characterized by excess “heat” like a fever, some respiratory issues, etc. The technique is literally a skin-scraping technique that aims to break up areas of tension and intentionally creates petechiae (called ‘sha’ in TCM). A ceramic spoon is often used, and is scraped across oiled skin. The treatment can feel anywhere from relaxing and soothing to a little uncomfortable, depending on the level of tension within the tissues, and the location.

Reflexology     Durations: 20/40    Cost: $30/$50

Reflexology is a hands-on practice involving the use of pressure applied to reflexes within various zones of the body located on the feet, hands and outer ears.  These reflex points may correspond to physical structures distant from the reflex point including muscles & organs, the nervous system, or other bodily systems, and the TCM meridian channels.  Through applied pressure on particular areas of the hands or feet, or ears, reflexology may help release tension, increase circulation, and support of balanced function in other areas in the body.  Generally, reflexology is helpful to reduce stress and help the body achieve a state of deep relaxation and homeostasis.  This treatment may be useful for sore hands and feet, general pain or tension in the body, or for overall wellness promotion.

Signature Stone Treatment         Durations: 80   Cost: $130

This session combines heated basalt stones with the talents of your therapist to deliver a combination of techniques for a customized session for grounding and warmth.
