Chinese Face, Neck and Shoulder Massage


Daoyin Tao (DYT) is a therapeutic, revitalising, rejuvenating and relaxing treatment thought to rebalance the body from within. It is the harmonious blend of softened traditional Chinese with Western massage techniques. The techniques applied to the head, neck and shoulders are a mixture of sweeping and static circular movements.

The name derives from Daoyin: an ancient form of breathing and movement exercises that mobilise the external body and massage the internal organs; Tao: the flow of life, the way of the universe.


DYT has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is an ancient form of healing that brings the whole body into balance, rather than addressing the symptoms of disease, as with Western medicine. The treatment uses the 4000-year old Yin and Yang theory with the system of the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water) to encourage the free flow of energy throughout the body allowing it to heal itself.


Chinese Face Massage

Developed through work on migraine and congested sinuses, DYT is useful in the treatment of any problems with the head or neck. In addition, as it is a holistic therapy, it is beneficial for a wide range of common ailments. Many minor health conditions respond well to DYT and it is supremely relaxing!


Your first DYT session lasts an hour during which time a detailed case history is taken and a 30 minute treatment given. Each subsequent session usually requires 50 minutes, or you can add on 10 minutes of reflexology to finish, it’s a great combination.

Your personal treatment plan is designed in the initial consultation after which time is spent working the most beneficial acupoints on the face, scalp, neck and shoulders. DYT is received lying down.
