What is Manual Therapy?

These bodywork sessions are a combination of deep tissue, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, table Thai and other techniques.

Our style of bodywork is best when performed with acupuncture. It helps improve joint mobility, reduce pain and break up myofascial restrictions so you can live pain-free and do the things you love most.

Tuina and

Manual Therapy Near Long Island City, Greenpoint & Williamsburg

Tuina is Chinese massage that is based on the same principles as acupuncture. The word Tuina means to push, lift and squeeze. This type of manual therapy stimulates combinations of acupuncture points using your fingers, hands, elbows and fist instead of needles. This form of manual therapy can be intense, but effective for frozen shoulder, bicipital tendonitis, golfers and tennis elbow. Tuina can also be used prior to acupuncture to help desensitize needle sensitive patients.

Chronic Pain Relief Throughout Astoria, Long Island City, Greenpoint & Williamsburg


Myofascial Release (MFR), is a soft tissue manipulation technique for treating pain patterns due to trigger points (knots) and mobility restrictions/stiffness in the joints. MFR typically consist of long sustained broad pressure to soften and relax tight bands of tissue.  A pin and stretch technique, also known as Active Release Therapy (ART) can also be used to further release myofascial restrictions by applying sustained pressure on a tissue while stretching and lengthening it at the same time. ART can be performed with cups or with manual work with hands, elbows and knees.
