In the classical sense, massage is a combination of certain techniques and manipulations that mechanically affect the state of muscle and tendon tissues. However, traditional Chinese massage, like traditional Chinese medicine, has a different approach to treatment methods than European ones. The therapist’s influence is aimed not only at bodily recovery, but also at harmonizing the subtle currents of the vital energy Qi that move in our body. Traditional Chinese medicine treats our body as a whole. We are healthy when our body is in the correct balance and circulation of Qi energy. A change in the function of any organ indicates a violation of the free circulation of energy in the meridian1, on which this organ is located. The goal and purpose of traditional Chinese medicine is to restore the normal balance of energy in our body. Where the concentration of energy is disturbed, pathology arises. Each meridian of energy has key points, the impact on which helps to achieve one or another effect – this is the basis of the ancient art of acupuncture. Chinese massage is based on this principle, but the activation of points occurs through various presses, tweaks, vibrating movements, which allow you to finely regulate the flow of Qi energy and at the same time, for example, relieve quite physical muscle spasms.
The massage is carried out using massage oil and is a combination of acupressure pressure on energy points and classic massage movements. The massage is deep, but not painful or discomforting. The massage is especially useful for pain in the back, lumbar region and neck-collar area.

1 Meridians are lines that invisibly run through the entire human body and circulate vital energy, connecting certain organs or groups of organs. Each meridian is “responsible” for a particular organ or area of the body. According to the theory of Chinese traditional medicine, there are 12 main meridians in the human body and are divided into two groups of 6 meridians, the Yin group and the Yang group.
