Acupuncture, a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (an eastern science over 10,000 years old) that is effective in treating a wide array of ailments and disease, as well as maintaining an active, healthy, and thriving being.
An acupuncture treatment consists of gentle insertion of thin needles at key acupuncture points and may also include other treatments such as cupping, herbal prescriptions, massage therapy and application of heat, based on needs.
Acupuncture addresses the root causes and system imbalances that lead to disease, allowing the patient to improve overall strength and well-being with each treatment. You will enjoy the expertise, extensive experience and education, and the compassion and dedication of our practitioners.
Massage Therapy is a healing art that has been integrated into every culture since ancient times. It takes on many different forms and continues to transform uniquely in each culture as health and science continue to evolve.
Mohari’s massage therapists are specialized in a diversity of styles & massage modalities that are targeted to each client’s needs and goals, including neuromuscular therapy (trigger point), myofascial, deep tissue, sports massage, Shiatsu, tui na, lymphatic and Swedish.
Massage therapy is an ideal healing modality for chronic and acute pain, headaches, insomnia, stress and anxiety, athletic recovery, surgical recovery, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, and more.
TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE IS ONE OF THE OLDEST FORMS OF MASSAGE.
Thai Massage incorporates assisted stretching of mayor muscle groups, similar to some yoga postures, and applying pressure with hands, thumbs, elbows and knees along energy lines. The movements are rhythmic, and the pressure is slow and sustained; allowing the body to open, surrender and invite a new rush of energy.
The duration of a Thai massage session is approximately one and a half to two hours. It is performed with the patient wearing comfortable clothes preferably cotton, lying on a mat or futon on the floor.
