ACUPRESSURE & REFLEXOLOGY
ABOUT MY MASSAGE
Hello and welcome to my personal website. My name is Kathy Zhao and I'm an Acupressure and Reflexology masseuse with six years of experience in the field. I also hold a post secondary degree from China
My full-body therapeutic (NON-SEXUAL) massage can be customized from light to a very deep touch treatment. Your treatment is on a professional massage table, in a warm, clean, tidy studio, located in a private residential area of Metrotown, Burnaby.
Acupressure massage is the most effective method for treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. My massage deals with all the aspects of a person as a whole: body, emotions, mind, and spirit as one, not as separate parts. It relaxes muscular tension and balances the vital life forces of the body.
The human body has fourteen "meridians" that carry energy throughout the body. These meridians start at the fingertips, connect to the brain, and then connect to the organ associated with the specific meridian. Acupuncture and my massage use the same points, but acupuncture uses needles, while my massage uses the gentle but firm pressure of hands. There is a massive amount of scientific data that demonstrates why and how acupuncture is effective.
• Relieve stress and tension
• Relax mind and body
• Increase blood circulation
• Aid in the removal of toxic wastes
• Provide relief from head, neck and shoulder aches
• Promote the healing of injuries
• Increase energy levels
• Increase overall feeling of well-being
Acupressure massage uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they alleviate muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force to aid healing.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are over 800 vital energy points along the meridians that run from the head down to the heels, especially along either side of the spinal column. (The meridians connect the interior and exterior of the body). Every point has specific therapeutic effects on the related organ. By massaging these points, the corresponding body area receives specific therapeutic treatment.
Western scientists have shown that many of these points are located at key crossways of the autonomic nervous system. This may explain in part why they can affect pain that the patient experiences in a part of the body far from where the pressure is applied.
