Acupressure Massage

Acupressure massage, which has been in use for more than 2,000 years, is a Chinese medical therapy with various manipulations applied to certain locations of the human body to prevent and treat diseases. One of its chief curative factors is the “quality” of manipulation and the other factor is the exceptional effect of the manipulated locations, channels and collaterals, and points. Therefore, generally speaking, on the one hand, when the curative effect of massage is working on one specified location of the body through manipulations, the direct effect of its stress can act locally to promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis, restore and treat injured soft tissues, correct deformity and abnormal location of bones and soft tissues in anatomic site. On the other hand, dynamic wave signals of the manipulation can reflexively influence the physiological function and pathological state of the body fluid, qi and blood, ying, wei, cerebrospine, viscera, mind and emotion, etc. through the conducting channel of points =channels and collaterals= viscera so as to effect recuperative medical function all over the body. The chief acting principles are as follows:

1. Regulating Ying and Yang - which is to balance the body’s inner Qi/to regulate the body’s inner balance.

2. Regulating the function of the channels, Qi (energy), blood, and viscera.

3. Recovery of the function of tendons, bones and joints.

b. Restoring and treating injured soft tissues and reducing dislocated joints.
c. Tripping adhesion, dredging stenosis.
