Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) healing technique developed in Asia over 5000 years. Acupressure involves placing penetrating and firm pressure by hand, elbow, or with the aid of various devices on different acupuncture points and meridians of the body. Benefits of acupressure include releasing muscular tension and pain ,balancing the body, promoting the circulation of blood, and stimulating the body's natural life force energy to flow (know as "Qi" ,which is considered to be the root source of life), strengthening the immune system, maintaining healthy and rejuvenating life.
Developed in Sweden centuries ago, Swedish massage is based on Western concepts of anatomy and is different from Asian style massages focusing mostly on points and meridians.Swedish massage involves gentle pressure as opposed to deep tissue massage and is perfect if you've never had a massage before. It is applied by rubbing the muscles with long gliding motions in the direction of blood,circular pressure, kneading motions, tapping, bending and stretching. An oil or lotion is also applied to help reduce friction and stimulate blood flow.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension of the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia.The therapy is applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscle, fascia and other structures. Recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is not uncommon for receivers to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two.
