Body Therapy – Acupressure + Deep Tissue Massage

Body Therapy is b-ê :: well’s signature therapeutic session. It is a combination of Acupressure and Deep Tissue Massage. Acupressure is an energy body work that intends to move the flow of energy within the body. It applies the same Acu-points on the meridians as in Acupuncture in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Gentle to deep pressure is applied to the Acu-points or meridians as the form of stimulation instead of needle. Friction, kneading, tapping and chopping are a common massage techniques in Acupressure where the therapist works at specific stagnations with their thumb, fingers, elbows or forearms. The movement and pressure are applied with intention. This is the part of the massage where “it hurts but feels good”. Together with a deep tissue massage, where movements and intentions are more towards muscular tensions and physiological pains, Body Therapy offers a complete relaxation and rejuvenation to both your body and mind.

Body Therapy follow ups are the follow up sessions after the initial appointment. It is encouraged to take 4 consecutive sessions weekly or bi-weekly for a complete therapeutic cycle. The body prefers to be stimulated and/or released incrementally, so are the mind and the spirit. The physical, emotional and psychological conditions of the individual during each session are being considered at each appointment, and the pace and therapeutic assessment will be applied accordingly to deliver a holistic and energetic session.

Body Therapy is created from my interests and ongoing research to offer being “energized by relaxation”. According to TCM and Yogic values of aliments, discomforts or illnesses are deeply rooted in and interrelated to the emotional and mental states of being, as well as the correlate stress level of the body. Stress can simply seen as a form of stimulation, and it is inevitable that we encounter all kinds of stimulation on a daily basis. So, the solution is how do we deal and cope with stress? How do learn to inform the body to fully relaxed? You may ask: is it possible? Certainly! Even though relaxation is not something we ‘learned’ in school or work, it is possible to guide the body to relax and be on the same page with the mind. Besides addressing the symptoms or pain, the intention of Body Therapy is to restore the body to a certain state of alignment and relaxation. It is like watching the ripple in the water slowly restore itself to the state of peace and calm, providing the clarity to see under the water and allowing the quiet surface to reflect the world above the water. It is ideal for releasing stress due to work or emotions, digestion problems, seasonal allergies and pre-menstrual tension.

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. It’s possible that you might feel some soreness the day after a deep tissue massage, and should drink lots of water after the session. This just means a lot of waste products were flushed out of the tissues. It should pass within a day or so.
