Benefit of Chinese Massage

The newest cure-all may be an ancient one: simple touch. Chinese people have been using massage for all kinds of medical conditions for centuries. Chinese massage is becoming popular in the West as means of treating a wide range of health and mental disorders. To perform Chinese massage, the practitioner uses a variety of hand techniques to manipulate the soft tissue of the body. It also employs acupressure to redirect the flow of Qi, or energy, in the body and manual skeletal manipulation techniques to realign the bones and muscles in the body for optimal alignment. Combined with aromatherapy, herbal ball, hot stone, and other accessories, Chinese massage help people with a wide range of health conditions and achieve overall health maintenance and well-being. 

Blood Pressure Benefits

Chinese massage reduces hypertension. A study in the effects of myofascial trigger-point massage therapy for people with hypertension showed that significant decreases in both diastolic and systolic blood pressure resulted following massage. The study, conducted by Delaney, J.P., Leong, K.S., Watkins, A., and Brodie, D. in 2002 at the Wirral Metropolitan College Department of Medicine in Liverpool, United Kingdom, also reported that patients experienced decreases in muscular tension and heart rate as a result of massage therapy

De-stress and Improve Emotional Health

On a physical level, Chinese massage can be very relaxing. It relieves stress and tension as well as improves feelings of well-being. Chinese massage practitioners believe, however, that blockages to the flow of Qi through the body can disrupt the mental state, leading to anxiety and depression. Chinese massage works to realign the Qi and also to remove layers of emotional stress that can build up over time.

Circulatory Problems

The main function of Chinese massage is to redirect the flow of Qi, which is responsible for circulatory health, throughout the body. By using different hand techniques and manipulating specific pressure points, the circulatory system is stimulated and re-energized.

Increase Energy

By realigning the flow of Qi in the body, Chinese massage is believed to be able to stimulate energy in the body and increase energy levels. Its stress-relieving benefits can also lead to improved sleep and a feeling of overall well-being。

Enhance Immunity

Chinese massage may boost immunity. Several studies have measured the stress hormone called cortisol in subjects' saliva before and after massage sessions, and found dramatic decreases. Cortisol, which is produced when you are stressed, kills cells important for immunity. Therefore, when a massage reduces your stress levels and hence the cortisol in your body, it may help you avoid getting a cold or another illness while under stress.

What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing method that involves applying pressure to certain meridian points on the body to relieve the pain. The human body has fourteen “meridians” that carry energy throughout the body. These meridians start at the fingertips, connect to the brain, and then connect to the organ associated with the specific Meridian.

Acupressure deals with all the aspects of a person as a whole: body, emotions, mind, and spirit as one, not as separate parts. It relaxes muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of body.

What is Reflexology?

Reflexology is the application of pressure, stretch and movement to the feet and hands to affect corresponding parts of the body. The basic premise of reflexology is that applying pressure to various points in the hands and feet can cause relaxation, relieves stress and tension, normalize and balance the body, as well as act as a form of preventive medicine. Reflexologists view the feet and hands as a mirror image of the body. By applying technique, a reflexologist can break up patterns of stress in other parts of the body. Stress is a barrier to the body’s return to a normal state of equilibrium. Many ancient cultures made use of this science, including early civilizations in India, China, Japan, and Egypt.
