What to Expect from Your Session
Both tui na and zhi ya sessions typically last more than a half hour. and can take up to an hour or more. Talk with your therapist before the session to establish appropriate communication and trust. It is advised to first discuss your health history and goals, and it may also be beneficial to find out which techniques your practitioner will use.
Your practitioner will allow you privacy to disrobe and drape a sheet over yourself before your session. You always have the option to wear what you are most comfortable in during a session.
Chinese massage practitioners may be more likely than other massage therapists to encourage talking during your massage. Not only does this provide them with feedback and increase your comfort, it may also help you release emotions that arise during the session.
Your Chinese massage therapist will likely work on your jin. This soft tissue connects the body and can affect the flow of chi. Practitioners also typically work on xue (acupoints), which connect the body’s various organs via the meridian system. In Chinese medicine the meridian system is a distribution network that resembles a web and links the body’s various parts together.
Some Chinese massage techniques bear similarities to Western massage, like pressing, squeezing, and kneading. However, your practitioner may also knead, knuckle, and gently pluck your soft tissue. Your practitioner may even employ hammering and vibrating methods.
Chinese massage, with its wide range of treatments, thousands of years of tradition, offers the benefit of improved health and an overall sense of greater well-being to many.
