About Massage

Massage was a precursor of acupuncture as the ancients learned to make the qi respond to touch and to the qi of the practitioner. Through millennia of massage and observation, the pathways were discovered, and so were many of the acupoints.

Massage Types:

  • Asian massage promotes the movement of Qi, Blood, and fluids. Tui na, shiatsu and other massage techniques are used for healing and to prevent illness as well as for pleasure.

  • Like yin and yang, Asian massage should be hard and soft, fast and slow, pleasurable yet slightly painful. Acupoints and channels are stimulated to promote flow. Limbs are stretched and pulled. Sometimes the torso is gently twisted. You won't fall asleep getting shiatsu or tui na. You will feel thoroughly massaged.

We offer 1 hour and 1.5 hour massages.
