Lymphatic Drainage massage is useful when working with clients who have sports injuries.

Acupressure is a traditional Chinese technique similar in principle to acupuncture, using finger pressure instead of needles. It is based on the concept of life energy, known in China as Ch’i, which flows through the body. This energy has as many names as there is human civilizations but for simplicity we will use Ch’i to describe it. When a person feels stressed, their body blocks Ch’i. This can cause an imbalance in the body that can lead to illness. Acupressure aims to keep Ch’i flowing through the body, keeping it balanced and disease free. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to points along the acupressure meridians aiming to release discomfort, clear blockages and rebalance energy.
