Jing is the Chinese expression for the essential fluid or life force of
our physical body. It is the most refined "essence of Qi" - the
material basis for the body. The Jing method uses acupressure on certain
trigger points to relieve pain & soothe aching muscles, working
synergistically with our Chiropractic care.
Lomi Lomi massage is Hawaiian inspired. It works gently yet
deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the
body, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.
Lymphatic drainage aids the filtering action for the lymph nodes alongside
specific organs such as the spleen protecting us against disease. Chronic
muscle tension can place pressure on the lymphatic vessels affecting efficient
drainage. Any treatment which relaxes the soft tissue can help accelerate
lymph drainage, encouraging muscle relaxation, removing toxin & fluid build
to promote optimum health.
