Korean Traditional Massage

Traditional Korean Massage is a mixture of other Asian massages (such as Chinese Tuina and Japanese Shiatsu), and heavily influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) concepts and therapies.

A Korean Massage is typically a full body, deep tissue massage where the masseur uses fingers, the thumbs, and elbows to apply acupressure, stroking and kneading. Sometimes a treatment is combined with a Korean scrub, acupuncture, moxa, and/or herbal compress massage.

The main goals of a Korean Massage are releasing muscle tensions, relaxing the nervous system, reducing pains, improving blood and lymph circulation, and balancing the Chi (Qi) energy flow in the body.
