The healing effect of an ABT treatment

Shiatsu Gall Bladder Neck Massage Upper Back Massage Lower Back Massage

Asian Bodywork Therapy / ABT
Shiatu / Tuina / Acupressure

It is a gentle and suitable bodywork therapy for all ages, from infants to elderly.
It is a form of natural healing, it balances the body's energy and stimulates and enhances the body's own healing abilities. ABT is a 5000 year old Chinese healing wisdom with ancient knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology.

ABT is a non-invasive therapy that helps contribute to overall well-being.

ABT is a great way to help to slow down when you have pushed yourself too much from everyday life. 

ABT can be used for a wide variety of internal musculoskeletal and emotional conditions, it is thought to reduce muscle stiffness, stimulate the skin, aid in digestion and influence the nervous system. ABT is effective sports therapy, sports injuries are treated using gentle stretches and pressure points.

ABT has shown to be effective for the pain and discomfort for many chronic conditions:

• Treats sports injuries
• Improves Circulation

• Reduces stress and tension as well as anxiety and depression
• Fatigue
• Insomnia
• Fibromyalgia
• Aids in treatment of musculoskeletal issues
• Aids in treatment of digestive disorders
• Treats PMS, morning sickness, and menstrual issues

The effect may be stimulating and invigorating or sedative and calming; depending on the goals of the session.
In the U.S. ABT is considered a subset of massage therapy or acupuncture, but is in fact similar to both.

Stagnant energy can be considered a roadblock to wellness as it is the very definition of why we feel pain.

An ABT treatment helps to bring balance back to our immune system.

Touch is a powerful tool for helping stressful situations have less hold on our lives, Shi-Atsu translates to the words finger-pressure.

Our worries and concerns do affect us, we all know that.
I am often asked by people why do I have all these KNOTS, in my body, the answer is because blood flow follows the energetic flow, these knots are real and are caused from discomfort on the physical, emotional or mental level.

When a person worries, this energy flows in many directions, and as such, will create circles and knots which eventually will prevent blood from flowing smoothly, especially in the spleen, stomach, and chest.

This knotting of energy will be abdominal distention, gastric discomfort, shoulder tension, breathlessness, or chest discomfort. But if worrying becomes a person's normal thought process, then chronic abdominal diseases will result.

ABT for pediatrics 

Kim Purdy has been treating children for more than 30 years and there is nothing more beneficial than a professional therapist treating a child through a healing ABT session. Unlike Swedish massage, ABT is a specific and individualized treating the person as a whole mind, body, and spirit.

Ongoing classes for parents and loves ones to teach how to use the gentle hands on treatment (Tsubos) pressure points this serves the child in so many ways especially balancing and strengthening the immune system and vitality.




Testimonials

I recently went to Bodyworks for the first time for an ABT treatment from Kim. Setting up my appointment with Kim was done easily via email. The location was comfortable and Kim was very polite and professional. The treatment was enjoyable and my muscles felt great after. The price for an hour treatment was also very reasonable. I will definitely be back for another treatment in the near future.

Bladder Point


I am often asked by people why do I have all these KNOTS, in my body, to which I respond, that 
because blood flow follows the energetic flow, these knots are real and are caused from discomfort on the physical, emotional or mental level.

When a person worries, this energy flows in many directions, and as such, will create circles and knots which eventually will prevent Qi from flowing smoothly, especially in the spleen, stomach, and chest.
This knotting of energy will be abdominal distention, gastric discomfort, shoulder tension, breathlessness, or chest discomfort. But if worrying becomes a person's normal thought process, then chronic abdominal diseases will result.

No matter how much we try to turn off our mind, it is possible, sometimes going out for a brisk walk or another action does not give us the full relief we require to get the

JOB of letting go of stress, but it is certain that not only does the mind relax during and after an ABT treatment, it also strongly affects our ability to allow our spiritual path to be more receptive.
For instance, a writer that feels blocked can now know the best direction to move for the creative ‘juices’ to flow.

An ABT treatment is a great way to help to slow down when you have pushed yourself too much from work or everyday life.

Touch is a powerful tool for helping stressful situations have less hold in our lives.
