IPPMC offers Chinese Massage
Ancient Chinese experts and practitioners believe that energy in the body has to flow continuously to help an individual to relieve stress and prevent diseases. There are two kinds of traditional Chinese massage: the "Tui na" and the "Zhi Ya." The techniques between the two differ, but people will experience renewed strength and vigor after a session lasting at least 30 minutes. Chinese massage has become widely used around the globe.
Benefits of Chinese Massage
Chinese massage relieves pain, boosts immunity and prevents illness.Chinese massage therapy provides pain relief from sore and injured muscles. The techniques improve blood flow to areas, which facilitates health and gets rid of lactic acid buildup. The techniques also help produce a calm and relaxing mood. It is a great way for people to rejuvenate and soothe themselves psychologically from stress. Regular massage sessions boost immunity and prevent the body from developing degenerative diseases, which usually involve the muscles, internal organs and bones. According to a study published in the "Archives of Disease in Childhood" in 2012, patients showed significant improvements in their conditions after application of such techniques.
Chinese Massage for Healing
A 30-minute massage promotes healing. Boosting blood flow and circulation to different pressure points in the body will facilitate healing and hasten recovery. People can revitalize their bodies by going for a 30- to 60-minute massage once or twice a month. A September 2010 study in the "Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine" showed that massage therapy enhances muscle repair and recovery. People who are suffering from problems like hypertension, diabetes, muscular pain can benefit from the massage.
What is massage therapy?
Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues (the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.
What are the effects of massage?
Although a single massage will be enjoyable, the effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, and so help to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension and any resulting structural weaknesses. Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system-depending upon what is required by the individual-and thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the receiver with a feeling of replenished energy.
