History of Oriental Hand Massage

Hand Massage Therapy is a traditional treatment applying Chinese massage techniques to adjust the blood and breath, to make Ying and Yang parallel, so as to preserve and protect peoples Health and prevent diseases.

Hands contain many thousand sensory nerve endings which, makes them one of the most sensitive areas of the body.  The early Chinese developed the technique of acupressure thousands of years ago.  This provided the basis for reflex zones and the relative points, and connections, between different parts of the body.

It is well documented that the early Chinese, Japanese, Indians and Egyptians worked on the hands and feet to promote good health.  Many of the long established principles developed then, are now available to be used in the modern practice.

This wonderful massage technique, is beneficial to our modern day life, with many of us now suffering with RSI ( Repetitive Strain Injury) or Carpel Tunnel.

Or hands and arms work continuously.  The many movements we perform each day, can put strain, wear and tear on the tendons, ligaments and muscles.  By using this technique, we help to reduce muscle fatigue, relive everyday aches and pains, and encourage joint mobility.
