What You can Expect
There is no use of drugs, needles or mechanical devices.
Essentially my aim is to serve, and to facilitate and to relax and balance the recipient's nervous system and to improve the recipient's overall physiological health, and to enliven the recipient's own natural powers of recuperation and healing.
Assessment and treatment in therapy may vary depending on what is needed. Within the eastern tradition, I work to harmonize and regulate the energetic pathways, the (meridians) and to attend to areas of energetic congestion and depletion. From a western medical perspective i may treat an energetic congestion/depletion that may be observed as an area of poor circulation or structural imbalance or pain. I may also employ stretching and a range of motion techniques, to improve one's joint mobility and muscle pliability. I may also recommend a dietary, herbal and, or a specific nutritional regime, or exercises and stretching techniques to enhance your healing response between visits.
During an Acupressure treatment I utilize both gentle and deep pressure using the thumbs, fingers and hands. Occasionally, as needed, i may apply techniques using elbows. Whereas Swedish massage involves the use of oil or lotion for the purpose of gliding techniques, acupressure is delivered using direct rhythmic pressure and contact is sustained. During a session please wear comfortable and loose clothing or you may receive the therapy while covered by a linen. Acupressure can be performed on a futon on the floor, in a chair, or on a table.
Benefits and After Treatment
After a therapy session you will feel a deep relaxation and re-connection with your somatic self. You may also feel sleepy or energized depending on your general health status. I encourage you to keep well hydrated after the treatment and to notice if there have been improvements in signs and symptoms. Please share these with me.
The benefits of this kind of massage therapy extend beyond our comprehension at times. The effects can be felt immediately or will be noticed over time. Acupressure massage deeply benefits those with chronic ailments, arthritis, muscle aches, & pains, digestive conditions, fibromyalgia, or any condition where relief is required in the bones, muscles, joints, tissues, or vital organs of the body.
