is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Asian, especially Chinese, medicine. It uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow specific channels, known as meridians - the same channels used in acupuncture. According to Asian medical philosophy, activation of these points with pressure (or needles) can improve blood flow, release tension, and enhance or unblock life-energy.
This is a kind of acupressure technique wherein the critical points of the foot are targeted, which are responsible for the overall health of the body. Pressure is applied in a circular motion and helps in balancing of emotions, relieving of stress and also helps in lowering the level of blood pressure.
Traditional Oriental Acupressure
The directional flow of Qi in the body is focused and acupressure points are applied. It helps in releasing tension and provides with good relaxation as well.
In this therapy, known to be one of the finest relaxation techniques, essential oils are used. These oils are applied and can also be used for inhalation purpose. Various special oil blends are used for enhancing the experience of massage. The products used for this purpose are organic and are of high quality.
Traditional Hot Stone Therapy
Smooth, polished stones are placed and massaged along strategic points of the body. This helps to soften especially tight muscles. It also enhances blood circulation, enhances the immune system and helps in the removal of waste products from the body. This treatment is of great use in enhancing mental alertness.
Deep Tissue Acupressure
The deep layers of the muscle tissue are focused on for the elimination of chronic patterns of tension.
Specialized Pain Relief Acupressure
Myofascial therapy is provided in conjunction with acupressure, bringing considerable pain relief.
Pressure is applied to both superficial and deep muscles which are rubbed in the direction of blood flow, greatly helping in the improvement of blood circulation and relief of muscle tension.
This is extremely beneficial treat for the pregnant ladies and provides good relief to many problems that are caused during this time like backaches, swelling, muscle soreness, leg cramps and bloating.
This kind of acupressure treatment is known to be extremely beneficial for people who usually spend a long time either seated at desk or standing on their feet.
Taichi Wellness Spa can provide you with various other acupressure treatments, including:
Lymphatic Drainage Acupressure.
Tibetan Medicine Steam/Bath with Acupressure.
Ho Guan (Cupping Therapy)
Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which a heated cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup has therapeutic effect on the skin and superficial muscle layer. Cupping is applied to certain acupressure points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain.
As an Add-on Treatment
Gua Sha (Channel Scrubbing Therapy)
Do you suffer from chronic pain? Excess systemic toxicity? Poor circulation? Lymphatic congestion? Inflammation? Fatigue? Infections? Physical or emotional stress? If so, then you will greatly benefit from Gua Sha treatment. Gua Sha is used regularly by practitioners and laymen in health care facilities and homes throughout China. The method of applying Gua Sha involves the layering of Gua Sha oil on the skin. This oil is enhanced either with healing herbs or essential oils chosen to aid the extraction of toxic waste. The skin is then scraped in the area of discomfort or at times on the entire body using a specific Gua Sha tool depending on whether the treatment is for physical or emotional healing.
As an Add-On Treatment

Wax Away to Soft, Smooth, and Healthy-Looking Skin
as practiced in spas such as Taichi Wellness Spa Plus, is not only relaxing but also hygienic. Wellness waxing is the easiest and the safest method of temporarily getting rid of body hair. Waxing services can be performed on any part of the body (arms, legs, bikini, eyebrows, face, underarms, etc.) Wellness waxing uses organic products which ensure that your skin does not break out into eruptions after a session.
Apart from giving you smooth and silky skin
wellness waxing also gives you other benefits like removing sun tan from the skin and eventually reducing hair growth, and removing dead skin cells. With benefits such as these, why use any other method? The waxing services we offer are among the best and will not leave you disappointed. And with the pain comes a reward for you: the massage you get after waxing is enough incentive for you to return the next month.
It is often quoted that beauty comes at a price, and women understand what that price is when every month
they have to go for painful and gruelling waxing sessions. The process may be painful, but the end result is promising enough to make them visit the spas and the beauty parlours again next month. The cosmetic and beauty world is undivided when it comes to body hair. Not only is it considered unhygienic, it also spoils the look of a person or a dress. Imagine wearing a little black dress with hairy arms and hairy legs as your accessories. Today men are also so fashion-conscious that they have no qualms opting for waxing services for their chest, back and arms, etc.
Though it can be painful
the after-effect is worth every bit of the pain. Though other options like Epilators and creams are available, they are hardly useful in the long run. Creams can make your skin dark and rough and Epilators cause the same amount of pain as wellness waxing and moreover they are also said to aggravate hair re-growth and make the hair stiff.
Waxing does not have to be an ordeal every month or whenever you go for your session
if you go with armful or legs full of hair, it is understood that the pain will be more. The best way to escape the pain is to go for waxing when you see tiny hairs sprouting from underneath your skin.Generally it has been seen that body hair takes an average time of 3-8 weeks to grow back, but other factors need to be considered here like the skin type of the concerned person, which can make the process fast or slow. Massaging the waxed area with a moisturizing gel helps soothe the pain.

The Benefits of Body Wraps and Scrubs
Body wraps and scrubs are all-natural
most often containing a mixture of herbs and minerals designed to beautify the skin. Essential oils, sugar, herbs or sea salts may also be used in daily spa body treatments, helping to tone and soften the skin while helping to get rid you of those unwanted inches. Results sometimes may be realized immediately. But toxins and interstitial fluids eventually re-accumulate, so regular body wraps/scrubs or polish may provide better long-term benefits.
Here is a summary of what you can expect from a body wrap or scrub

Body scrubs may use salts and other natural ingredients to exfoliate and detoxify the skin.

Slimming Body Wrap
The Slimming Body Wrap provides slimming of the waist, abdomen, hips, thigh, knees, arm, and calves.
