Your treatment will be carried out by Alex and will be tailored to your individual health needs according to Oriental Medicine principles. A variety of techniques will be applied to facilitate energy flow. These may include gently holding, pressing of the palms, thumbs, fingers, elbows, knees and feet on the meridians and when appropriate, more dynamic rotations and stretches.
