Qi Rejuvenating Facial and Shoulder Massage

According to Chinese medicine, stagnation of Qi, the vital life energy, is what causes tiredness, stress and illness. This distinctive massage treatment stimulates movement of these vital essences releasing the tension in the neck and shoulders and restoring the natural beauty of the face.

About Qi massage

In Eastern philosophy, Qi (pronounced ‘tchee’) is the life energy that is inherent in all living things. According to Chinese medicine, stagnation of Qi, lymph fluids and blood is what causes so much of the everyday tiredness and stress in our bodies. This distinctive massage treatment stimulates movement of these vital essences releasing the tension in the neck and shoulders and restoring the natural beauty of the face.

What is involved in the treatment?

For Qi Face and Shoulders Rejuvenating Massage, I aim to revitalise the circulation of Qi, blood and lymph. This involves the use of acupressure points on the face, shoulders and scalp and a series of special procedures exclusive to this tradition including a metamorphic method and a technique called Opening the Window of the Sky. The massage is concluded by the use of traditional Chinese tools (Guasha and jade rollers).
