350 Main Street, Latrobe, Pa

Chinese Medical Exercise and Acupressure Massage Therapy is based on the
traditional Chinese medicine meridian theory which has been used in the treatment and prevention of illness for over 2,000 years.

For centuries, life has been considered as an energy phenomenon. It is only because of the existence of this energy in our body that we can move, breathe, digest food, think and even feel. Our energy flow affects how we feel, how we think, and our health

Our bodies are already equipped with a “rescue system” that stores healing energies which is the Meridian System. According to traditional Chinese medicine, life energy called Qi (chi) flows through the body across 12 major meridians. The Meridian System is like a web that covers our whole body that corresponds to specific organs and body functions. When all of the meridians work in harmony and function together in unison, we remain in good health. When the body’s life energy (Qi) becomes blocked whether from stress, injury or trauma, or bad living habits (diet or lack of exercise) there is risk of causing all health problems, physical and mental. If you know how to keep the
meridians in balance or how to correct imbalances, you will facilitate your healthiness, preventing your health problems living in happy healthy!
