Eastern Massage Techniques
Eastern Massage Techniques
Eastern massage therapy techniques offer a healing approach that is rooted in energy balancing within the body as opposed to Western therapeutic massage which primarily focuses on the physical source of an ailment. With a long history that has developed over thousands of years, Eastern massage techniques still consider the physical aspects of a condition, but primarily as they relate to the subtle life force energy that moves through the human body. Intense Therapy LLC offers a range of Eastern-based massage therapy services to our clients.

Tui Na (Chinese) or Anma (Japanese)
Practiced for more than 2000 years in China, Tui Na is a form of massage that applies rhythmic pressure to establish a harmonious flow of energy along the various channels of the body. Used to treat a variety of conditions, Intense Therapy LLC therapists are trained and experienced to apply Tui Na massage that is administered using gliding, kneading and tapping strokes to various pressure points. Tui Na is often used to relieve physical symptoms of many conditions including arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms, and other stress-related disorders. Suitable for people of all ages, Tui Na provides many benefits for balancing both mental and physical health.
Hot Stone Massage
Heat is an excellent resource when attempting to heal sore and fatigued muscle tissue. That is one of the reasons why saunas and hot tubs are popular ways to relax.
With this relaxing technique heat is transferred to the body using specialized polished stones which are placed at key points on the body. Heat makes the muscles expand and become more pliable, allowing a professional therapist to get deep into the tissue to remove knots and eliminate tension.
Similar to other ancient Eastern therapies, the practice of Shiatsu massage not only addresses the signs and symptoms of a particular condition, but is used to achieve a complete physical energy evaluation that helps to determine the most suitable treatment technique. Results from holistic assessments not only reveal the source of a particular health problem but allow Intense Therapy LLC therapists to design a uniquely personalized therapeutic program based on the theory that every organ in the body is subject to an energetic pattern that must be balanced to achieve lasting healing. Recipients of Shiatsu massage remain fully clothed and in close communication with the massage therapist to ensure complete comfort during the treatment.
