Dian Xue Massage | Chinese Acupressure

Dian Xue Massage is a Chinese full body massage treatment completely based on applying acupressure and it uses the same acupoints as acupuncture.

Dian Xue therapy typically uses the fingertips (mostly thumbs and index fingers) to apply pressure and is mainly used to provide pain relief and to stimulate the working of the internal organs.

The technique can be used by massage therapists to stimulate two different acupoints simultaneously, one with each hand, while stretching or twisting the area of the body between the points to stimulate the flow of Qi Energy.

The Dian Xue Massage treatment has a history parallel to that of the Chinese martial arts, where the acupoints were used as a means of recovery and healing, but likewise as a means to “neutralize” the enemy.
