This is a relaxing, deeply therapeutic massage incorporating deep tissue, Swedish, acupressure and stretching. It brings balance mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally by using Swedish massage to increase circulation and eliminate toxins, passive yoga therapy or stretching to increase flexibility and range of motion, acupressure to release energy blockages and deep tissue to work on areas of chronic muscular pain or tension.


Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage (45 or 90 minutes)

Head, back, neck and shoulders massage is the ideal solution to muscle tension caused by knots or postural problems in the upper body.


Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (90 minutes)
This therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

Scalp Acupuncture (20~30 Minutes)
This is a modern acupuncture technique that combines Chinese needling methods with western medical knowledge of representative areas of the cerebral cortex, including anatomy, physiology, pathology and neurology. During a treatment, very short, fine needles are placed between the scalp and the cranium to achieve the desired therapeutic effects. The use of Scalp Acupuncture is exceptional for its fast effects – it is not uncommon for a client to notice an improvement after the first treatment. These positive responses can continue for a couple of days, but to obtain the best results, it may be necessary to repeat the treatment. It treats the same range of conditions as body acupuncture. Notably, it is most effective in the treatment of acute conditions, pain, nerve system disorders, and psychological and psychosomatic disorders.

Acupressure or Tui Na Massage (60 minutes)

This is (pronounced "twee naw"), which literally means "pinch and pull." This is to harmonize yin and yang in the body by manipulating the Qi in the acupuncture channels. This includes Acupressure (a blend of "acupuncture" and "pressure.") So if you are afraid of needles, you may be able to get much of the same effect from acupressure. This is the most effective method for treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. It 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 the body. 


Cupping Therapy or Bentosa (10 minutes)
This is usually used as part of acupuncture or body massage treatment and has been a part of Chinese medicine for over 3,000 years. This consists of using plastic cups and creating suction and vacuum pressure over localized areas of the body. The suction helps to release rigid soft tissue; drain excess fluids and toxins; loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue; and bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles and also helps open up the chest, benefits the lungs and can also benefit menstrual and digestive problems. The benefits are local pain relief and muscle relaxation. It improves overall health by removing the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy or qi. For athletes, cupping may help increase blood flow to a particular muscle region or help reduce pain 

Gua Sha or Scraping Therapy 
This is an age old bodywork technique which is still practiced in China and other parts of Asia. The word "Gua" means to scrape and "Sha" from a TCM point of view, refers to the blood stasis or stagnant blood and qi that blocks the meridian pathway that can affect proper flow of energy and blood.  Blood stasis  will accumulate in the subcutaneous tissues.     


Moxibustion or Moxa Therapy
This is an acupuncture without needle and a form of heat therapy on certain designated points of the body using  smokeless charcoal sticks to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi or energy in the body, helps to increase blood circulation, stimulate digestive system function and boost the immune system and dispel certain pathogenic influences.


Chinese Reflexology or Foot Massage  (30 minutes)
Heal the body and soothe the sole in my clinic.  Step into the Chinese zone of ancient healing using thumb, finger and hand techniques.  This is to promote relaxation, balance energy throughout the body, improve circulation, reduce pain, soothe tired feet,  eliminate toxins and encourage overall healing. 


Soft Touch Relaxation/ Elderly Massage (30 minutes)
Geriatric massage aims at improving specific aging health conditions, such as stiff muscles, limited mobility and chronic pain. As mature skin contains less moisture and is more susceptible to bruising and tearing, geriatric massage therapists use soothing, gentle strokes and mild stretching instead of standard massage pressure. Sessions also are usually shorter, lasting about 30 minutes.

Jet-Lag Recovery Massage (2 hour)
This is the perfect treatment to overcome jet lag and to relieve stiffness, aches and pains. To reduce jet-lag and fatigue I begin with an allover body scrub with an antioxidant Organic salt scrub, followed by a gentle and soothing massage bringing together elements of Swedish massage and with the stimulation of reflex points on the scalp and the feet with a blend of signature oils to increase circulation and reduce swelling, bringing complete serenity to your body and mind. Highly recommended after a long flight.
