Rehabilitative Tui Na Massage and Yoga with Susu
Everyday modern life can lead to a wide variety of chronic and acute conditions that often require intervention and restoration to balance. Susu offers Rehabilitative Treatments integrating clinical Tui Na massage, moxibustion and cupping--all rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine—to address headaches, insomnia, joint pain, arthritis, and muscle strain, whether it be new or past injuries.
During your hands on session with Susu she will utilize any mix of the following:
TuiNa Massage – A form of Chinese manipulative therapy used to bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine in to balance. The areas between the joints, known as the eight gates, are pressed, massaged, squeezed or otherwise manipulated to open the body’s defensive Chi (Wei Qi) and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles. The name comes from this, “Tui” means “to push” and “Na” means “to lift and squeeze”.
Cupping – Dispel stagnated blood and lymph which smooths meridians, improves Chi Flow and releases stress from your muscles.
Moxibustion – It is especially effective of treating chronic problems and deficient conditions (weakness) and improving energy level.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga – Ashtanga Led Primary is a flowing practice including vinyasas and connecting breath to movement. Susu guides you through the series while helping you balancing strength and flexibility in a fun, invigorating atmosphere.
