Massage & Bodywork Techniques in Gainesville, FL
We offer the following massage therapy and bodywork techniques, each of which can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with our other holistic therapies and services:
Tui Na & Shiatsu
Tui Na and Shiatsu techniques are designed to relax the body and release tension, while also stimulating the movement of both Qi and blood in areas with stagnation or stasis. Beyond stress relief, Tui Na encompasses body manipulations that can provide instant relief from stiff and aching joints, as well as relieving chronic neck and back pain. From pain management and injury rehabilitation to relaxation and stress relief, these two massage treatments are ideal options for promoting optimal health and wellness.
Fire cupping is a bodywork practice that uses a small flame to create a vacuum inside special glass cups, and then those cups are applied to the surface of the skin. This draws blood and fluids up from areas of the body that have decreased circulation, and the treatment is highly effective at loosening chronically tight and painful muscles. In fact, fire cupping therapy offers a similar level of relief from aches, tension, and pains as provided by deep-tissue massage.
Gua sha works to enhance circulation by moving blood that has become somewhat stagnant in the body’s tissues. Indeed, improving microcirculation in this way is a key component in relieving many types of pain, especially aches and pains that are difficult to treat because they radiate throughout a wide area of the body, rather than coming from one specific point.
