Acupressure, which may be done through clothing, or within a therapeutic massage, includes Shiatsu, Tui-na & Thai Massage. It utilizes the same points, meridian lines & theory as acupuncture.
Instead of needles, we access the Acupressure points with finger pressure, massage techniques, magnets and moxabustion, which is where we warm the acupressure points with heated herbs. It is very beneficial for restoring function and having more long-lasting results than massage without Acupressure.
While most clients prefer to incorporate some of these Asian techniques into their therapeutic massage, you may wish to have your entire session as Acupressure, Shiatsu, Thai Massage or Tui-na. It is our desire to tailor your session to the work that you wish to have, and we do not charge any more, or any less, based on the techniques you choose to have. Simply tell us how you wish your session to be when we schedule the appointment and during our intake discussion so we can provide the right ratio of therapies to suit your own unique wishes.
