Tai Chi massage is a blend of the principles and movements of Tai Chi whilst giving a Swedish style session. It is not a specific technique as such, rather an evolution of the therapist’s existing style. The benefits are that energy generated from the circular flowing movements is accumulated in the therapists hands and then passed into the client.
The rhythm and flow of Tai Chi makes for a more relaxing experience for the client and therapist alike. The body mechanics allow the therapist to maintain good posture, protecting from stress and strain upon the body. It also charges them with chi/life force energy/prana. Combining breath with movement puts the therapist in a calm, meditative state of mind. This aids their sensitivity to the client’s needs and accentuates the therapeutic experience.
