Chinese Acupressure
Chinese acupressure. It's also known as deep tissue massage, Shiatsu or sports massage.Clothes are worn during the massage.

China has a long history of massage for health benefits. Traditionally, blind men were trained as masseurs, giving them needed employment. While "blind man" massage parlors are still popular, there are many new spas opening up offering traditional Chinese body massage as well as Japanese shiatsu, foot massage, and cupping.
Acupoints used in treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. The TCM theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing yin, yang, and qi (also spelled "chi"). This theory is based on the paradigm of TCM.
Many East Asian martial arts also make an extensive study and use of acupressure for self-defense and health purposes (
chinna, tui na). The points or combinations of points are said to be used to manipulate or incapacitate an opponent. Also, martial artists regularly massage their own acupressure points in routines to remove blockages from their own meridians, claiming to thereby enhance their circulation and flexibility and keeping the points "soft" or less vulnerable to an attack.
Two types of traditional Chinese massage exist - Tui na (推拿) which focuses on pushing, stretching and kneading the muscle and Zhi Ya (指壓) which focuses on pinching and pressing at acupressure points. Both are based on principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Though in the Western countries Tui Na is viewed as massage, it is not.
Massage of Chinese Medicine is known as Anmo(按摩), which is the foundation of Japan's Anma.
Tui Na is Chinese Medicine's Physio-Therapy. Utilized for medical purposes instead of relaxation, Tui Na works to correct the patient's problems,
frommusculoskeletalconditions, to diseases, cancers and even minor and major headaches.
Within the foundation of Tui Na, Traditional Chinese Medicine principles are followed, from Meridian Applications to Herbal Formulas, Qigong Therapy and heated herbal application (Moxa). Technique applications such as friction and vibration are used as well.

Benefit of body massage
Pain relief:Relief from pain due to musculoskeletal injuries and other causes is cited as a major benefi of massage.In one study, cancer patients self-reported symptomatic relief of pain.This study, however,did not include a placebo control group so these effects may be due to the placebo effect or regression towards the mean. Acupressure or pressure point massage may be more beneficial than classic Swedish massage in relieving back pain.However, a meta-study conducted by scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign failed to find a statistically significant reduction in pai immediately following treatment.State anxiety: Massage has been shown to reduce state anxiety, transient measure of anxiety in a given situation.Blood pressure and heart rate: Massage has been shown to reduce blood pressure and heart rate as temporary effects.
Attention: After
massage, EEG patterns indicate enhanced performance and alertness on mathematical computations, with the effects perhaps being mediated by decreased stress hormones.
Other: Massage also stimulates the immune system by increasing peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs). However, this immune system effect is only observed in aromatherapy massage, which includes sweet almond oil, lavender oil, cypress oil, and sweet marjoram oil. It is unclear whether this effect persists over the long term.
Multiple dose effects
Stress reduce: When combined with education and exercises, massage might help sub-acute, chronic, non-specific low back pain.Furthermore, massage has been shown to reduce pain experienced in the days or weeks after treatment.
anxiety:Massage has been shown to reduce trait anxiety; a person's general susceptibility to anxiety.Depression: Massage has been shown to reduce subclinical depression.
Diseases: Massage, involving stretching, has been shown to help with spastic diplegia resulting from Cerebral palsy in a small pilot study. The researchers warn that these results should "be viewed with caution until a double-blind controlled trial can be conducted". Massage has been used in an effort to improve symptoms, disease progression, and quality of life in HIV patients, however, this treatment is not scientifically supported.
Benefit of Foot Massage

What is a foot massage?
Be careful not to mix up the two following phrases: "foot massage" and "barefoot massage" While a foot massage is done with the patient barefoot, the term "barefoot massage" implies the
typeofmassage (such as A shiatsu or barefoot Swedish massage) that is performed (on the patient's back, etc.) with the practitioner's feet. A foot massage, however, is a massage that is performed on the feet of the patient. There are many benefits to receiving a foot massage.
What are the benefits of a foot massage?
There are many benefits of this type of massage, including the most basic: it feels good. The feet are many times the hardest worked of all body parts. They are what hold your weight up all day long, and the longer you walk or stand, the more tired they will become. By receiving a foot massage, the patient can experience relaxation as well as pain relief.
As well as the most basic benefits, there
are ma ny other benefits to foot massage as well. Take zone reflex therapy as an example: the belief in this type of foot massage therapy is that the beginning of all reflex zonesisin the feet, and by rubbing and manipulating these areas of the feet, healing can occur. Based on this belief, a regular foot massage could also have healing qualities because the necessary zones may be rubbed and manipulated (even if it?s unintentionally).
Another benefit is the release of stress. There have been studies performed on patients of heart surgery that showed there was a significant decrease in the stress of patients after a foot massage. This could mean that a foot massage not only causes relaxation due
tolessstress, but better health as well. Since heart disease is linked with mental well-being (i.e. too much stress can lead to a heart attack), the foot massage can be indirectly causing better overall health, as well as recovery and prevention.
Is there anyone who should not receive a foot massage?Most people would have no problems receiving a foot massage, but it is important if you have any medical conditions that are questionable, to talk to your doctor beforehand. Since there are some illnesses that can affect the feet, such as Diabetes, it is best to get your general doctor's approval before taking a risk. The doctor can then allow it, possibly set restrictions on the foot massage therapy, or choose to have you refrain from it. Whatever your doctor's decision, it is important to follow his guidelines strictly.
