Oriental Massage Video

An Oriental massage video teaches basic techniques of different types of massage therapy practiced in Asian cultures.

Learning Oriental techniques allows you to provide relaxation or much needed deep Shiatsu work, massage cupping, traditional Tui Na, foot massage, face massage, Thai massage, or Ashiatsu massage with the feet, using bars overhead for balance.

Types of Oriental Massage

Shiatsu - provides deep pressure point massage using thumbs, fingers, and palms of hands. It's primary goal is to re-establish the proper flow of "Qi" (energy flow) throughout the body.

Cupping - creates a negative pressure suction with massage cups to loosen chronically tight muscles or scar tissue, increase blood flow, and encourage lymph drainage.

Tui Na - a Chinese massage technique that usually combines several different therapies like Shiatsu, acupressure and reflexology to achieve a pain-relieving goal.

Chinese Foot Massage - involves vigorous rubbing and kneading of the feet to work pressure points and is still considered an important part of Chinese medicine.

Chinese Face Massage - this face massage therapy works 25-27 pressure points in the face, neck, and shoulders to relieve tension and stress in facial muscles.

Thai Massage - includes stretches and deep breathing routines to encourage not only relaxation of muscles, but relaxation of the nervous system as well.

Ashiatsu - is a barefoot massage where the therapist uses overhead parallel wooden bars for support and balance.

Benefits of Oriental Therapies

Oriental therapies tend to be goal-oriented. Releasing muscles, reducing low back pain, and reducing sinus pain and pressure are common treatments. Using pressure point therapy to achieve the goal is also common in many techniques.

Because these therapies are based on the concept of re-establishing the energy flow (Qi) within the body, most provide an increase in energy, a strong sense of well-being, increased blood circulation and support of immune system functions.

Learning Oriental massage 

The basics of Oriental massage can be learned through video instruction, however detailed instruction should be taught in a classroom setting in order to truly understand and practice them in a clinical, therapeutic setting. Many of theses therapies were taught over the course of a lifetime, so a few hours of classroom training may leave you with many more questions about this type of massage.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe

Life has changed a lot over the past 6 months, and going to a spa may not be an option financially, or even safe, with social distancing guidelines.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and release stress and tension at home, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

I've created a spa recipe book, filled with easy at-home spa ideas, to help you relax and release stress from your body at home.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage products, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
