Traditional Chinese medicine
I focus mainly on Tuina massage, guasha, and reflexology foot massage.
With all these techniques, my aim is to affect acupuncture points and support the free flow of Qi (energy) in the pathways. This has a positive effect on the musculoskeletal system, it harmonizes the internal organs and relaxes the psyche. It also includes dietetics, which plays an important role in diagnosis and therapy according to traditional Chinese medicine. Diet affects our physical and mental condition, and many people do not know about it, (or in better case – they do know, but they don’t know that they are harming themselves with what they eat.) By combining the above-mentioned techniques and the right diet, you will be able to feel the results on your body very quickly.
Tuina is a Chinese therapeutic massage offering a wide range of options for influencing the health of the body and mind. It includes both manual techniques for affecting joints, muscles, and tendons, as well as subtle techniques for harmonizing and supporting the flow of qi (energy) in the deeper layers of the body and organs.
Guasha is a massage technique based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and performed using a jade plate. It has an immediate effect and helps the therapist to diagnose problems in the body. A special Guasha plate is applied to the skin, which then reveals the sowing in different places, in different intensity and shape. Accordingly, it is possible to diagnose the client’s condition and choose a suitable therapy.
It is a healing method that is used in classical massages but also in Chinese medicine, as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. It uses the vacuum that is created in the flask when the air is sucked out. By sucking the skin in a painful place, the blood vessels dilate and thus the blood flow is accelerated. It is suitable for relieving pain and, for example, at the beginning of a cold. It affects both muscles and joints and tendons, it also harmonizes and supports the energy flow in the deeper layers of the body and organs.
A natural technique in facial care that helps reduce wrinkles and skin imperfections. A cream is applied to the face, which is spread with two jade plates. The massage perfuses the tissue and nourishes the skin. The skin is then brightened, smoothed, refreshed and the color of the face is unified. The effect is visible immediately. With the help of facial Gua Sha, we can alleviate not only the signs of skin aging, but also unevenness, pigment spots, veins, sacs, and circles under the eyes.
Reflexology foot massage
This reflex massage is based on how the individual parts of the body are projected on the feet. Through the foot, I can stimulate and remotely influence various locations on the body and improve their health.
