If YOU have experienced a Gua Sha Body Massage, we hope you are feeling looser and lighter after your recent Remedial Massage treatment.
Gua sha is a therapeutic method of classical Chinese medicine that works to improve circulation and blood flow to reduce tension and chronic pain. The scraping of skin with a gua sha tool causes the appearance of purple or red spots known as petechiae or sha.
Although this may appear visually similar to mild bruising, it actually signifies the impeded circulation of qi, blood or fluids in the area of treatment. Gua sha is used to address stagnant energy, blood and fluids within the body and to move the body back into a state of homeostasis and promote overall well-being.
We trust that you left the studio feeling rejuvenated and with increased mobility in those tight and painful areas. If your pain persists, please Contact Us.

Acupuncture and massage are both very effective treatments to help a range of ailments and concerns. When they are both combined together it can create the best restorative treatment to help melt away the physical tension, quieten down a busy mind and bring the body back to a deeper level of balance.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture involves inserting needles into the body to stimulate sensory nerves in the skin and muscles.
Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy – known as chi or qi – believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. When the qi does not run smoothly throughout the body this can result in illness or imbalance. Imbalanced qi can manifest as a variety of physical and emotional symptoms such as chronic pain, fatigue, low mood, headaches, congested sinuses, anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders, and menstrual problems. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture is believed to re-balance your vital energy.

My name is Lidia and I just joined the You Massage team!
Let me tell you briefly how my journey began….
It all started with a dream; a dream of helping others and living in harmony with myself. I thought the best way to accomplish this is to become a doctor.
However, fate led me to another, and now I know, a better path, to work Holistically. I became a physiotherapist, massage therapist, nutritionist and cosmetologist, helping people without medicine.
Working with clients and listening to their stories, I began to notice that the way we look and feel is based mainly on our lifestyle.
This is how my fascination with integrative health and cosmetology began. This is a client-centered approach that focuses on the root cause of the problem and the whole person – not just physical symptoms. The root cause is usually our lifestyle.

Facial Reflexology works by using gentle facial massage techniques for precise stimulation of reflex points, nerve points and zones on the face and scalp. As with hand or foot reflexology, there are points on the face that represent areas and systems within the body.
The aim is to help reduce symptoms and effects of many common ailments but also to provide total relaxation, thus encouraging the body and mind to start to heal. The face has a high density of reflex points which are very sensitive to signals sent by the organs and other areas of the body and their response to stimulation is quickly transmitted to the part of the body concerned. The proximity of the face to the brain and cranial nerves is what makes this therapy so effective.
