Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) June 27, 2006
There are more than 150 million visits to spas and massage clinics each year. More people are pampering themselves with massage therapy, facials, waxing and other body treatments than ever before. And more businesses are opening to accommodate the increased demand.
This has resulted in a glut of the same, "me too" day spas that dot urban and suburban centers, all performing similar variations of the Swedish massage. This makes a visit to Oriental Retreat and Spa near Seattle a must for savoring a unique Chinese spa experience rarely found elsewhere in Washington.
Their signature massage is the Qigong Tuina, rated the most popular massage for three straight years in New York City. According to Dana Zhang, owner of the spa, Qigong Tuina focuses on Chinese meridian acupressure points in the body. Qi is the flow of energy through these points and pain is caused by blocked Qi energy. Qigong Tuina massage restores the flow of Qi throughout the body
Qigong Tuina is perfect for tight muscles and pain relief and is a unique massage technique. Massage therapists use most parts of their body to knead, roll and stretch for a total body massage that leaves one feeling refreshed and energized. The Couples massage and the Four-Hand Indulgence Massage are especially popular. The latter consists of two massage therapists working in unison using synchronized massage strokes.
Other traditional Chinese therapies include hand and foot reflexology, acupuncture, cupping (small glass suction cups placed on the back) and Gua Sha. In addition, a full range of body and skin care services are offered, including European anti-aging facials, Swiss steam shower, Chinese body scrubs, herbal body wraps, microdermabrasion and waxing for hair removal. The latter includes the popular Brazilian bikini wax, just in time for summer.
Clients have been raving about their experience at Oriental Retreat & Spa, leaving gushing testimonials about the quality of service. Dana prides yourself in using only natural, herbal ingredients for all of their spa and massage treatments. Often the formulations are prepared fresh that day and are not skimped on when applied.
