Acupressure Massage

Acupoints used in treatment may or may not be in the same area of the body as the targeted symptom. The Traditional Chinese Medicine theory for the selection of such points and their effectiveness is that they work by stimulating the meridian system to bring about relief by rebalancing yin, yang and qi (also spelled "chi"). This theory is based on the paradigm of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Many East Asian martial arts also make extensive study and use of acupressure for self-defense and health purposes (chin na, tui na). The points or combinations of points are said to be used to manipulate or incapacitate an opponent. Also, martial artists regularly massage their own acupressure points in routines to remove blockages from their own meridians, claiming to thereby enhance their circulation and flexibility and keeping the points "soft" or less vulnerable to an attack.

We've been clients of Liz for over ten years now. Previously we'd used a series of massage therapists over the last 40 years. None have come close to the satisfaction provided by Liz. We think of her weekly visit as a "system reset" that is a vital part of our busy lives.

Liz's pursuit of both anatomical knowledge and therapeutic advancements place her WAY beyond the "masseuse" category.

Nothing compares with the professional massage I received from Liz Yerkes. Her kind manner and her professional skills make for an experience that is not only therapeutic, but incredibly enjoyable and relaxing. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to be in "good hands".

I recently had a Body Scrub with Ellen Cross. While the Scrub itself was fantastic, Ellen's professionalism, experience and intuitive response added immensely to the benefits - including relief from chronic pain. I felt totally relaxed, rejuvenated and very grateful to have been on her table! Highly recommended!
