Chinese Acupressure Massage
This ancient technique uses rhythmic compression along energy channels of the body, as well as a variety of techniques that manipulate and lubricate the joints. It affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body at acupressure points. It is designed to prevent problems and also to correct specific problems such as chronic pain. It improves physical, emotional and mental health by keeping the body's energy balanced.
This gentle yet deep form of body therapy is performed in the luxury of warm salt-water (body temperature.) It combines elements of massage, joint mobilisation, muscle stretching and acupressure. The receiver is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of warm water and nurturing support, combine with Aqua-Vie's movements, stretches, massage and point work, to create a bodywork with a range of therapeutic benefits and profound healing on many levels.
In this unique healing system invented by the Buddha and his physician, the client is guided through a series of yoga postures, while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically. Fantastic for pregnancy, but not recommended for those with bone fragility.
This bodywork seeks to restore the proper functioning of the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, it places particular importance to the bone (placement, structure, organization) and to the muscle synergy. This awareness allows the bones to return to their proper alignment, their muscle function and skin flexibility.
