Relax, heal and rejuvenate
Acupressure massage is a massage discipline that has been practiced for over 5,000 years. It has also been practiced by Buddhist monks for good health, vitality and longevity since ancient times.
This therapeutic technique uses a combination of deep tissue and relaxation massage. It is similar to acupuncture because the same acupuncture points may be used. However, only finger pressure and massage are applied to these points, not needles.
Your Massage Philosophy therapist may also use their thumbs, palms, side of the hand, knuckles and elbows as massage tools. These acupressure techniques help break-up and diffuse the build-up of toxins in your muscle tissue. They may help to correct imbalances, reduce tension, and revitalise your body’s energy flow. Massage techniques include rubbing, kneading, vibration and percussion.
Acupressure massage can help reduce stress, improve your energy levels, and relieve back and post-operative pain.
At Massage Philosophy, you can receive acupressure massage seated or lying down, and through your clothes or directly onto your skin, depending on your preference.
