Tui Na is one of the oldest known systems of massage, originating from China as far back as 2300 BC. This bodywork treatment is based off of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that uses Taoist and martial arts principles to bring the body into balance. This form of Chinese manipulative therapy does not require the client to undress, wearing loose comfortable clothing is recommended. Techniques used can include rolling, pressing, kneading, brushing, range of motion, traction, massage and stimulation of acupressure points. The therapist can help facilitate the body's energy to move within the meridians, tendons and muscles. (Offered by Rudy Avalos, LMT)
Eastern Deep Tissue
This style of bodywork is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and connective tissue. It focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles and is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, and clients who have sustained physical injury. Excellent for athletes and can be included into a "sports focused" bodywork session. Though highly beneficial from a long term perspective, it is not uncommon for clients to experience muscle soreness/or aches for a day or two, in extreme cases sometimes longer.
