Is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force (sometimes known as qi or chi) to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle, but firm pressure of hands and feet. Acupressure, continues to be the most effective method for self-treatment of tension-related ailments by using the power and sensitivity of the human hand. Acupressure can be effective in helping relieve headaches, eye strain, sinus problems, neck pain, backaches, arthritis, muscle aches, tension due to stress, ulcer pain, menstrual cramps, lower backaches, constipation, and indigestion.

Chinese Back Walking
One of our rooms at Holistic Health Care is built with wall to wall bars in the room. These bars over the table are used by the therapist for balance and weight adjustment while using the feet to massage and release the back.
Craniosacral Therapy as an osteopathic practice begun with Dr.
William Garner Sutherland who challenged the medical concept that cranial sutures in adults are fused and can not move. This method works with subtle shifts in cranium, spine, and sacrum. Dan often uses it for TMJ syndrome and neck issues. In addition it is sometimes effective with tinnitus.
Cupping is a traditional technique found in many countries. A glass or plastic cup is used with suction on the skin. This is a form of myofascial release which frees restrictions and allows for increased qi flow. It may leave a red circle on the skin for several days.
The use of hot stones in massage comes from Polynesia. It is similar to Swedish strokes. The oiled heated stone is used to smoothly work into muscles. The stone shape, the heat, movement, and pressure is important for releasing tight muscles and stress. It is a very soothing treatment for sore over worked muscles. Try this from Ai when you have over done and can't unwind.
Korean Martial Therapy (Hwal Bup Do)
Hwal Bup Do is a healing art taught along with other martial arts in Korea. It was begun on the battlefields 400 years ago to get warriors back into battle. Because of this it is an excellent first response for injury. Adaptability to the situation allows for table, mat, and chair applications. The method includes therapeutic bodywork and self healing techniques. This is the method preferred by Dan, 7th degree black belt in Hwal Bup Do. Like Hapkido leverage and the spiral motion is used to stretch and improve mobility.
The traditional Hawaiian massage is characterized by long flowing strokes and compression. There are many styles of lomilomi handed down through families. Dan does a more modest nurturing style from the lineage of Papa Kalua as taught by Kumu Karen Leialoha Carroll
http://www.kapuaokalani.com/. You are wrapped in a sarong and gently eased of soreness and stress. You can also choose the Temple style lineage of Abraham Kawai'i. This is the most flowing of massages. Unbroken strokes using the forearm move from ankle up the leg to back shoulder and back down the arm. Oil is heavily used to increase the gentle continuous feel. The table is oiled to allow the arms to work smoothly under you. Clients have compared it to being picked up and floating on a wave.
Your Lomilomi can include pule (prayer) and ho'oponopono (forgiveness) both are traditionally part of the spiritual healing massage of Polynesia.
