Massage Therapy is a relaxing hands-on treatment which relieves tension, restores energy and relaxes tight muscles. This therapy is performed in conjunction with your acupuncture treatment by our Acupuncture Physician. The practitioner will use her hands to apply pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints, soothing away pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction. Manual therapy is also helpful for the treatment of joints that lack adequate mobility and range of motion.
A similar massage practice is the use of Tuina, which often resembles Shiatzu, but focuses on stimulating and applying pressure to acupuncture points in order to soothe ailments without the use of needles.
Our doctors and therapists work to restore mobility, ease stiff joints and reduce muscle tension in order to return the patient to more natural, pain-free lifestyle.
