Try these three kinds of massage for a post-vacay boost

Massages can help improve sleep as well as muscle and joint pain, and release stress.

A massage is a great way to take time out and do something for yourself before heading back to work or school this fall. Here are three different types of massage to try for relaxation, revitalization and more.

Revitalize with a Tui na therapeutic massage

Traditional Chinese massage needs no introduction these days, but this technique offers more than just relaxation. In fact, massage forms an integral part of treatment in Chinese hospitals. Tui na uses deep action along acupuncture meridians, working out blockages to harmonize vital energy -- called qi or chi -- and improve its circulation throughout the body. Despite its firm and vigorous technique, Tui na is suitable for all ages. It's a great stress-buster and can help improve sleep as well as muscle and joint pain.

Ease headaches and back pain with craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is an offshoot of osteopathy. Practitioners apply light pressure to the head, the base of the spine and other areas of the body to relieve tension. This alternative therapy is particularly popular in the USA and the UK, and is often used to soothe newborn babies after traumatic births. Certain osteopaths, general practitioners, chiropractors and naturopathic doctors are trained in CST techniques.

Soothe stomachs with Chi Nei Tsang (Taoist abdominal massage)

In India the stomach is home to the soul, whereas in China it's the nerve-center of our emotions. But stomachs often suffer from the effects of stress, unhealthy diets and poor breathing. Derived from qi gong, Chi Nei Tsang massage focuses on five major systems of the body: vascular, lymphatic, nervous, muscular and qi (energy). It favors the circulation of energy (qi) in the abdomen and related meridians, and helps calm the nervous system. The technique aims to encourage the body to "digest" emotional burdens with calming and detoxifying effects. Look for a physiotherapist or massage professional trained in the technique.
