Massage -connecting everything together


Our tools in oriental medicine are varied but massage is a basic practice that animates your subconscious to bring attention to an area that is lacking attention.

At Steve’s Acupuncture Clinic we use Shiatsu, Do-In or Anma massage, depending on the needs of the patient. Shiatsu 指圧 means “finger” and “pressure”, Anma 按摩 means “to squeeze” and “to rub”, and Do-In 導引means “to direct” and “to drag”. All these massage techniques are aimed at improving the flow of energy in the body and are used independently or in conjunction with acupuncture and moxibustion.
