The Chinese massage is based on the principle of yin and yang. The objective is to mobilize and balance the vital life force that flows through the meridians, otherwise known as chi. The massage technique consists of both sweeping caresses along the meridians as well as targeted stimulation of specific areas through finger pressure. The improved energy flow this promotes has a beneficial impact on your organs and increases your general sense of well-being. However, the massage is also well suited to relieving muscular complaints.
The sensual, second half of this massage consists of soft, attentive stroking movements and gentle, tender caresses all over your body - in particular, your erogenous zones - and culminates in a stimulating massage of your genital area. Here, we use our imaginative and varied bodywork technique based on Far Eastern principles to provide you with maximum pleasure.

The Chinese massage is performed using oil on a massage table or futon.
Chinese massage is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This system is concerned with detecting and resolving physical or mental blockages, and is based on the Taoist principle of yin and yang. The energy flow pathways in the body as well as specific points that lie on the pathways are manipulated during the massage. The latter is referred to as acupressure.
More and more people are turning to alternative medical models in addition to Western science-based medicine, looking for a more gentle treatment with fewer side effects – and perhaps for help in cases where allopathic medicine has reached its limits. In this quest, Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has come increasingly to the attention of both laypersons and professionals. Early observations of nature by the Chinese resulted in a comprehensive concept of man and medicine as early as antiquity. Today, TCM is primarily known for its teachings about energy flows and acupuncture. It has proved itself particularly in treating chronic conditions. Chinese massage helps to activate life energy. This then has a positive influence on stimulating flows of energy, and blockages, which manifest themselves as chronic complaints, are being resolved.
Chinese massage – An integral part of TCM
TCM includes acupuncture, medicinal therapy, dietetics, exercise therapies and Chinese massage, which is known as "Tuina". The word "Tuina" consists of the two words "tui" and "na". "Tui" means "push" or "press". "Na" can be translated as "grip" or "pull". "Tuina" is therefore more than just another name for Chinese massage, but also describes its character because pushing, pressing, gripping and pulling are the basic elements of the technique. The typical wellness effects only play a minor role in this type of massage. Rather, it is considered to be a holistic therapy. Tuina is a healing method. But it can also be used as prevention and bring about a deep relaxation. Relaxation is both the basis for the application of TCM and its goal. Chinese massage is therefore an excellent method to resolve inner blockages by way of relaxation. In TCM, life-energy flows through the human body in the form of yin and yang. This life energy is called "Qi", which flows along certain pathways, called meridians. There are twelve principal meridians and eight extraordinary channels. The principal meridians are paired on both the left and right sides of the body. There is no scientific evidence of the energy flow pathways because these are not physical pathways, such as blood vessels. They merely serve as a model that is used to explain certain effects.
Tuina includes pushing, pulling and rubbing techniques as well as acupressure. The meridians are stimulated over a large area by rolling, pushing, rubbing, tapping and gripping movements. Stretching techniques support the bones and muscles. Once a certain disturbance of life energy has been diagnosed according to TCM principles, the massage therapist stimulates the therapeutically indicated meridians and acupressure points. This has a positive influence on the meridians where blockages have been detected. If no diagnosis has been made and the massage is not intended for therapeutic purposes, it is used for a general revitalisation and prevention. In this case, no specific meridians need to be stimulated and massage is applied where it is most pleasant and comforting. There are 18 basic Tuina strokes and approx. 300 individual strokes. These are complemented by special foot massage techniques; basically a combination of acupressure and reflexology. Modern Chinese massage also includes chiropractic types of treatment, other forms of massage and applications taken from the manual therapy approach.
You can also apply Tuina as self massage. This should be done only after consulting a doctor or professional massage therapist, though. Daily self massage is suitable for prevention. You can also apply acupressure yourself. But you need to bear in mind that every person reacts differently and has their own individual energy balance. Because of that, it is recommended that you first determine which objectives you would like to achieve and which applications would be most suitable.
