“The skills I use are both grounded in Traditional Chinese Medicine Massage (Tui Na – Acupressure Massage) and Western Massage techniques.”

"Really great, and I'm no massage rookie! As an aging athlete, I've had back and neck pain for many years now, and have had 150+ massages by 25+ therapists over the years. After just one 90 minute session, Jing is in my top 2. The ashiatsu thing is a trip -- Jing hangs from bars and uses her feet to massage your back, hips, butt, and legs. Her ability to find the right "spots" and apply the right pressure is uncanny. Nice clean mini spa setting and reasonable prices. Great stuff!"

"Different but great!
I went in for a deep tissue massage, my muscles were very tight from a cross country move to the area and the stress of getting settled in. I arrived for my appointment and Jing Liu suggested a different type of massage that may be more effective than the deep. I tried the Ashiatsu massage and was surprised how effective it was! Because she uses her feet, she was able to get deeper that the deep tissue could. Thanks!"

"Wonderful Massage
Jing Liu's massage was the best I've ever had. She really knew how to focus on the spots that were the most problematic using super effective techniques I've never experienced (using her feet while suspended from parallel bars) and gave great advice after the massage about how to help continue getting knots out."

Ashiatsu Acupressure Massage
Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy®

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is a massage technique pioneered by founder Ruthie Hardie using deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body; this creates a structural change in chronic soft-tissue damage.

Correct application will provide deep relaxation and stimulate the lymphatic system, help elongate and decompress the spine, relieve pain, improve posture while improving bodily functions, and promote a well-being state. It is a highly effective treatment for those who suffer from chronic back and neck pain and the effects of over-exertion.

In my practice, I may apply AOBT as a "two-footed" ashiatsu massage for larger and more muscular clients - ideally suited to athletes or the athletically inclined, since this involves deeper pressure. Otherwise, I apply the technique with one foot while bearing much of my weight on the massage table with the other foot.

I have completed advanced training in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy®.

Tui Na-Acupressure Massage
Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a method using focused, slow-paced pressure that affects the deeper layers of muscles. I apply deep-tissue massage to specific kinds of problem areas. The level of pressure I use is based on the client’s real-time feedback, preference, and professional judgment. Since deep-tissue massage is not suitable for the entire body, I combine deep-tissue massage with other modalities for a more thorough “whole-body” therapy to relax and address any other problems.

Swedish - Relaxing Western Massage

Swedish Massage is a soothing, nurturing therapeutic massage to quiet the mind, relax the body, muscles, and soothe the spirit. This approach is intended to offer you a luxuriously relaxing time away from your busy and often stressful life. It also promotes circulation, the removal of toxins, and the flow of immune cells by stimulating lymphatic flow, among other benefits.

Barefoot Deep Pressure Massage
Ashiatsu - Barefoot Deep Pressure

Ashiatsu, "Ashi" means foot and "Atsu" means pressure; I apply this technique with my feet as an extension of my hands for Deep-Tissue Massage and Chinese Acupressure.

While these integrated techniques are useful and effective for the entire backside of the body, it is especially helpful for those suffering from lower back pain, hip pain, and tension in the buttock muscle. These conditions are commonly found with runners, bikers, and people who do a lot of heavy lifting and even those sitting for long hours each day.

The foot's shape allows the application of deeper pressure than hands without creating the discomfort associated with other deep pressure massage techniques using the hand and elbow.

Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques

By recognizing and treating muscle imbalances and strain patterns in the body, the manual therapist can bring order and balance to the body before the onset of pain, which is the primary goal of Myoskeletal Alignment. The secondary goal is to establish pain-free movement during the walking cycle by testing for muscle imbalances, recognizing strain patters as they present themselves, and attempting to restore function in the alignment process.

Having completed course work by Erik Dalton Ph.D I am a Certified Myoskeletal Alignment Therapist in regard to “Posture & Pain” and “Upper Body Specialist”

Acupressure | Tui-Na

Acupressure is a Traditional Chinese Medicine healing modality which uses pressure at specific points along Meridians (the same as acupuncturists use) but without needles. The targeted therapeutic results are intended to be the same or similar as acupuncture; although, TCM practitioners use these two techniques in combination for an enhanced effect, so acupressure can be used as an adjunct to acupuncture therapy.​
