Greetings Knoxville!

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, most people are spending more time at home than ever before, but that doesn’t mean your health has to suffer!

To support the community, we are posting exercises to keep your immune system in its best shape!

Mark Drake has shared a wonderful short practice to open the Lungs and stirs the Wei Qi (Immune boosting energy). Since we can’t join together for Qi Gong today, you can practice at home. Mark suggests doing this 2 times a day if you can.

Massage Techniques :: What is Deep Tissue Massage?

Deep tissue massage is a type of therapy that addresses long-term, chronic pain within the muscles, tendons, fascia, and joints. It uses long, firm strokes with additional pressure to reach the deepest layers of the muscle tissue. While it can be uncomfortable at points, it is particularly effective as a long-term strategy for prolonged muscle pain.

Massage Techniques :: What is Hot Stone Massage?

Hot Stone Massage is a technique that uses lava stones that have been worn smooth by the sea, that are heated, and then placed on the body. The stones are cooled to an appropriate temperature for the client by turning them in cold water.

The stones can be placed directly on the body, on top of towels or sheets, as well as used in gliding motions to deepen the affect of the heat and the massage itself. It is a gentle, soothing technique useful for many different methods of body work.

Massage Techniques :: What is Gua Sha?

This centuries-old technique uses small, rounded spoons and tools to gently “scrub” the skin, which helps activate capillaries and bring stuck toxins, blood, and chi to the skin’s surface. Though the technique looks painful, it is quite safe and is usually quite comfortable and relaxing.

Practicing Acupuncture with Knoxville Weekend

There are a lot of misconceptions about acupuncture. Ask most people what it is and you will probably get a dozen different answers. Acupuncture is SO much more than just having some needles stuck into your skin. We had the opportunity to work with Knoxville Weekend, along with two other amazing local acupuncturists, to help clear the air and help people understand what acupuncture is, what it can treat, and how it can help!
