Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that originates in Ancient China and is widely used throughout the world today. The basic principles of this practice are inserting very thin needles into pressure points throughout the body to relieve muscle tension, stress, and can aide greatly in healing muscle trauma. It is also used in the treatment of chronic pain, neurological problems, stroke rehabilitation and post surgical recovery. Tammy-n-touch Massage offers acupuncture services to our patients either on its own or as a part of a larger therapeutic plan. This in combination with our full range of physiotherapy services offers our patients a wide range of options based on their comfort level and their needs.
The ancient art of acupressure is a 5000 year old tradition originating in Asia. The idea behind the technique is that there are points on the body which can be activated to promote healing. These points are found on every part of the body and can be used to:
- Boost the Immune System
- Release Tension
- Increase Circulation
- Relieve Stress
Cupping therapy involves using cups and some method to create suction and pressure on the skin. Traditionally it was small pieces of burning paper placed inside the cup and then applied to the skin.
Reiki Healing, also known as palm healing, is a Japanese healing technique which focuses on balancing the energy in a body. The theory behind the practice is quite complex, as it focuses not only on the health of the body but equally the mind and spirit as well.
Shiatsu practitioners have their own unique style of massage to break down energy blockages in the body and bring energy to areas where energy is deficient. Incorporating a variety of stretches into their manipulations to promote proper health and well-being in clients, shiatsu is a full body experience.
Thai massage is done without the use of oils as friction is uses to stimulate the muscles and other systems of the body. Utilizing deep static and rhythmic massage techniques the client is massaged by the therapist relying on their body weight to both hold the body in specific positions to stretch the muscles and massage them simultaneously.
The practitioner of the art uses range of motion, traction, and massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points. Clients regularly see a Tui na master to alleviate chronic pain, musculoskeletal conditions and digestive problems related to stress.
