SwizzleSticks SalonSpa is excited to announce that we are now offering Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities!
Traditional Chinese Medicine is based around the idea that our body’s energy or qi (pronounced ch'i) flows along pathways in the body known as meridians. The belief is that if these meridians are blocked or unbalanced the body is opened up to the possibility of illness.
Treatments are used to balance the opposing forces known as yin and yang that can become imbalanced by many internal factors such as: emotions of joy, fear, or anger, external such as cold, heat, or wind, as well as lifestyle factors including: poor diet, too much alcohol consumption, or a lack of sleep.
Western lifestyles have many factors that can cause our energies to become and stay unbalanced, and we are thrilled to share with you that we are now offering Traditional Chinese Massage with Mr. Lee as well as Traditional Chinese Remedies of Cupping and Acupuncture with Queenie Wang, our two new spa providers!
