Chinese massage, also known as Tui Na, is an ancient practice that aims to release the flow of energy around the body. The underlying philosophy of Chinese massage is that true health is achieved when one has found harmony and balance inside the self and their environment. Chinese massage is to create harmony in the yin and yang of the body by getting rid of blockages and disturbances that manifest as illness, disease, and emotional issues.
During Chinese massage, lots of skillful techniques are used to bounce you back to good health, including kneading, rolling and deep pressure that's applied to precise points on your body. Chinese massage is similar to acupuncture in the way it targets specific acupoints, but practitioners use fingers instead of needles to apply pressure to stimulate these points.

The massage is most commonly done over the clothes and does not require oils or creams.

Hot stone massage
Hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones. The massage therapist places the hot stones on specific points on the client’s body and may also hold the stones while giving the massage.
In preparation for the treatment, the massage therapist heats the stones in a professional stone heater until they are within a precise temperature range. The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and relax muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas without causing discomfort.
Some preliminary studies suggests that hot stone massage may provide benefits to people with conditions including prenatal depression, pain syndromes such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, hypertension and autoimmune conditions.
