Old Remedies Don't Fail

Massage Therapy: How China Revolutionized Self Care and Wellness


Within modern, westernized massage therapy, we've begun to utilize various tools and relaxation techniques that are aimed at treating the patient's aches and pains while also promoting a healthy circulatory system. However, one thing can be said for certain: Health and wellness techniques, which originated in the East, are becoming popular once more. Unique herbs, liniment oil, acupuncture, and cupping are being utilized as a means to heal the body while incorporating Chinese viewpoints and Eastern methodology. If you're interested in the Chinese approach to health, keep reading and see how you can begin the healing process today. 


Chinese Herbs for Liniment Oil and Stillness



The Chinese believe that mental and physical stillness contains great power and the ability to revolutionize one's life. Ever noticed, perhaps during a massage or therapy session, how your mind clings to one focal point? This is, without a doubt, one of the core components behind the Chinese belief system that has resonated for hundreds of years. The idea that bringing our attention to one focal point (meditation) can dramatically still the mind and produce a sedative effect on the body. 

Similarly, a licensed massage therapist may have used a unique combination of herbs and oils to improve your personal health and release any tension within your system. One of the most popular tools -- liniment oil -- acts as a natural cure for general pain that arises in the joints and muscles. Therapists in both the East and West have used this oil as an all-natural treatment for arthritis pain, joint stiffness, and tension that has accrued in the body over the years. 

If you're a practitioner, or perhaps someone that wants relief from their aches and pains, the Chinese approach is the next step to take in your journey towards recovery.
