Chua-Ka Massage Therapy And The Benefits It Can Provide Your Health

without comments

The Mongolian massage known as Chua-Ka is a form of body work that most closely resembles Tui Na massage. A deep tissue massage therapy, Chua-ka is used to release trapped tension and pain in the body whilst liberating the psyche of its corresponding preoccupations and fears. Hence, this ancient form of massage is useful for the relief of both physical and psychological problems.

According to the philosophy underlying Chua-ka, all people are born supple and smooth creatures. As we age, we accumulate memories of pain, build up metabolic waste products in our body, and lose the suppleness and smoothness (which can be spiritual, mental, and physical) we are born with. The mind and body form a single unit and everything that occurs in the body can be manifested in the mind and vice versa.

The objective of Chua-ka massage therapy is to eliminate the stored memories and deposits in the mind and body in order to promote an enhanced sense of awareness and good health. On your first visit with a Chua-ka therapist, you will be asked some questions regarding your medical history and lifestyle and dietary habits so that the therapist can be devise a plan of treatment that addresses your specific needs.

Certain thumb techniques are used during the session to manipulate and massage the deep tissue. Your skin may be also massaged using smooth and long strokes to help restore the original elasticity of your skin and stimulate your circulatory system. The massage is deep, yet gentle and fosters a general sense of well-being.

Towels are used for warmth and comfort. Chua-ka works for best for people seeking to improve their health and self-awareness.

 Stress and related symptoms
 Cellulite
 Digestive disorders
 Headaches and migraines
 Insomnia
 PMS (premenstrual syndrome)
