Welcome to The Art Of Massage.
I have retired from active western styles of massage and now devote my time to the Medical Qigong part of my practice.
WHAT IS QIGONG?
My training and approach to muscles and movement and associated pain and stress is derived from Chinese Medical Qigong. At the core it is energy based.
I use a form of Qigong energy detection which enables me to sense uneven tension/tone in the muscles a person’s body. Basically, I can tune in and feel the signals put out by the proprioreceptors embedded in the fascia of a client that tell the brain the strain level and distance the fascia of each muscle cell is subjected to. This is what I call my “Chinese MRI”. When your levator is under stain, my levator will feel tense.
This detection technique greatly facilitates detecting and relieving the muscle imbalance creating your problem. Each joint has competing reciprocal muscles. In addition the muscles attach to fascia we call tendons and I tend to focus on the nerve receptors in that fascia and use pressure techniques on them to make that particular muscle relax.
Using Chinese Medical Qigong also allows me to address core issues that go deeper than a strained muscle and teach you self treatment in the form of a qigong exercise. If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue, this is for you. 95% of the time, your anterior thorax and abdominal muscles are in a state of mild, but continuous tension, like waiting for a “sucker punch”. Over time this will wear you out. Qigong allows you to slowly and rhythmically contract and extend specific muscles to treat the physical symptoms of auto immune disorders.
The knowledge of Qi has been around for centuries because it works. Often human interaction is the one luxury that we loose in our fast paced world. Take the time to find how good running energy through your body can make you feel. Send me an email to connect, or call my cell phone
We take you there.
