TUI-NA (Chinese Acupressure Massage)
Tui na is a bodywork therapy that was developed in China over 2,000 years ago. It works with the energy system in the body known as the meridian system. Like Acupuncture, Tui na works with the Qi (chi) energy of the patient to bring a balanced state of health. But unlike, acupuncture, no needles are used. The work is done entirely with the practitioner's hands to help increase the beneficial flow of Qi through the patient's meridian system. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques, Tui na seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system of channels and collaterals, allowing the body to naturally heal itself

“GUA SHA” THERAPY
Gua sha (Chinese: 刮痧; pinyin: guā shā), literally "Scrape Sand" in Chinese (more loosely, "to scrape away disease by allowing the disease to escape as sandy-looking objects through the skin"), is a form of folk medicine. Raising Sha removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes and help relieving muscle tension and knots, joint pain, neck Pain, headaches, respiratory disorders and carpel tunnel syndrome.
Gua sha involves repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edge. Commonly jade. A simple metal cap with a rounded edge is commonly used. The smooth edge is placed against the oiled skin surface, pressed down firmly, and then moved down the muscles—hence the term tribo-effleurage (i.e., friction-stroking)—or along the pathway of the acupuncture meridians, along the surface of the skin, with each stroke being about 4–6 inches long. This causes extravasation of blood from the peripheral capillaries and may result in sub-cutaneous blemishing (ecchymosis), which usually takes 2–4 days to fade. Sha rash does not represent capillary rupture (petechiae) as in bruising, as is evidenced by the immediate fading of the markings to echymosis, and the rapid resolution of sha as compared to bruising. The color of sha varies according to the severity of the patient's blood stasis—which may correlate with the nature, severity and type of their disorder—appearing from a dark blue-black to a light pink, but is most often a shade of red.
