Far Infrared Sauna
Infrared heat relieves pain, improves circulation, enhances skin's healing process, increases metabolic rate, speeds recovery time, and improves immunity without using steam. Infrared heat goes directly to tissues, joints and muscles.
Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that has been used for centuries to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, emotional and mental conditions. It stimulates precise points on the body with a very fine needle.
Cupping is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that uses small “cups” and heat on the body to focus blood flow in an area. Focused blood flow helps your body by flushing built-up toxins through the lymphatic system. Cupping is a deep tissue massage, much like Gua Sha, but works deeper in your muscles and fascia.
After a session using cupping, you may have circular marks on your skin from the cups. These marks will go away within 24-48 hours. Post treatment is the same as Gua Sha.
GUA SHA (pronounced “gwah shah”)
Gua Sha is a common practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that is used to get blood moving again so your body can recover from injuries and overuse. Massage oil or lotion is applied to the skin of the area to be treated. A smooth-edged instrument is used by the therapist to apply short or long strokes on the skin, typically in the area of pain or on the back parallel to the spine. This stroking motion creates raised redness or bruise-like marks (but not bruises) as the blood is restored to the painful area. The change in color indicates how much of a problem you have in the area, and usually fades within 2-4 days.
After receiving Gua Sha, it is important to stay dry and warm, without cold air blowing on you. (Avoid showering for 12 hours).
TUI NA (pronounced “twee nah”)
Tui Na uses principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine to restore the body to balance. Your therapist will use his or her hands on your muscles and joints to affect the flow of energy through your body, using motions like rocking, pressing, and rolling your skin.
