Traditional Chinese medicine holds that the body’s vital energy (chi or qi) circulates through channels, called meridians, that have branches connected to bodily organs and functions.
Gracie focuses on five major modalities of traditional Chinese medicine treatment:
- Tui Na Deep Tissue Massage
- Tui Na Relaxation Massage
- Cupping & Moxibustion
- Dietary Planning
- Qigong Stretches
Before the traditional Chinese medicine treatment, a compressive analysis of the client’s health problems will be assessed and noted. A treatment plan will then be recommended by Gracie, and following client approval, treatment will commence. Although clients have experienced results after only 1 or 2 treatments, Gracie has found in her practice that the greatest benefit is realized after 3 to 5 treatments, with occasional maintenance treatments following initial treatment.
