Chinese massage is concerned with ‘qi’ – or energy and energy flow around the body. The specific techniques of Chinese massage were developed alongside therapeutic exercise (or martial arts) and acupuncture over 5000 years ago. They each depend on the same understanding of the meridians or channels of the body.
Chinese massage therapists look at holistic health. Part of their philosophy is that massage affects both the physical and emotional self.
