Welcome To Encompass Massage  and Body Work

What is Tuina?

Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese Taoist and martial arts principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into balance. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press, and rub the areas between each of the joints, known as the eight gates, to attempt to open the body's defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles.[3] The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, and massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points. These techniques are claimed to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.

It is vigorous, and can be very deep or very light depending on what is needed. Tui-na is usually performed with the client fully dressed and a sheet draped over the areas being worked.

Why Tuina?

Tuina techniques work. Tui-na is Chinese massage and physical therapy.  It can ease discomfort, improve function, relax or energize depending on which is needed.

Pricing has many options depending on what you need. Packages are available for frequent clients. Each one is set up with you and your budget in mind. Please come and talk and we can build a package specifically for what you need. 

I see clients on a very regular basis and welcome new clients to come on board.
Massage is not just for relaxation, it should be in your routine wellness regimen.

Feel Better...Live Better

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Why Massage?

Massage and body work has been practiced for thousands of years. Going into the entire history is not what I want to do here, instead I would like to let you quickly know how it can benefit you in your day to day life.

Reduce stress:
Taking the time to breathe and have the muscles smoothed throughout the body leaves you feeling relaxed, focused and can make even the toughest day melt away. We incorporate the brain in each session with proven techniques in breathing to help you relax even deeper.

Reduce Pain:
  Those tight little knots in the neck and shoulders can be soothed and removed leaving you         with a freedom of movement you may not have felt for a long time. Irritated muscles from an injury? Those need special attention to release and return to normal function.

Regain Range of Motion:
Tight muscles shorten and give us a smaller range of motion. If left  in their shortened state, the surrounding muscles are affected too.. Addressing limited range of motion early can help restore normal range and prevent long term problems. The same goes for over stretched or over used muscles.

Feel Better...Live Better.
