Tui Na is an Oriental Bodywork Therapy that has been used in China for 2,000 years. It uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic orientation. This hands-on body treatment offers rhythmic compression along energy channels of the body, as well as a variety of techniques that manipulate and lubricate the joints. It directly affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body at acupressure points.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. Acupressure Therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments. Also, it releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health.

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points on the feet, which correspond to different body organs and systems. It has a beneficial effect on the organs and person's general health by pressing the specific points. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that purportedly reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body. People believe that practitioners can relieve stress and pain in other parts of the body through the manipulation of the feet.
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It's based on the theory that energy, called ‘chi’, flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. Results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also helps reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches.
Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced, so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. The earliest documentations of cupping can be found in the work titled A Handbook of Prescriptions for Emergencies, which dates all the way back to 300 AD. Cupping can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood, lymph, and Qi to the affected area and throughout the body.
Gua sha therapy
Gua Sha is an ancient natural healing technique. In this procedure, a lubricating medium like oil is applied to the skin of the area to be treated. A smooth edged instrument is used to apply short or long strokes on the skin. The stroking motions are typically on the areas of pain or on the back parallel to the spine. Gua Sha technique has the ability to break up the stagnation of the body to promote the smooth flow of blood in the area in order to release the pain.
