     Celebrating the Year of Rat with Palace Herbal Spa
                                     2020 is the rat year
Rat symbolizes wisdom and swiftness. Have a great year!


When twigs, stones, and dirt fall into a stream, its flow will be blocked. The upstream may flood, the downstream will suffer drought... When it becomes worse, the plants and grass will either be drowned or die of thirst.
This is your body, according Chinese Medicine, which has rivers, fields, lakes, mountains, roads. There are 12 meridian channels inside your body with over 365 acupuncture points on them--they are much like those rivers and streams. When a certain point is blocked, you feel discomfort or pain. You are sick...

Massage is a branch of Chinese Medicine, which can unblock those spots along your meridians, and bring back the life force to you, then you are healed.

Palace Herbal Spa is an alternative health clinic providing authentic Chinese Medicine Massage created by May Wang  & Jone Guo, including: Full Body Table Massage, Neck and Back Chair Massage, Foot Reflexology, Foot Detox Spa, etc. Come to the Palace and everyone will be treated like royalty.

         How to Get a Massage: Avoid the  Wrong, Get the Right

                              A "MUST-READ"
Dear Patron, whether you are having a massage at home, or in a spa, please bear the following in mind to avoid issues or problems that may affect your health:

1. Please avoid light Swedish massage in winter. According to Chinese Medicine, the kidney meridian rules your health through coordination with bones in winter, and massage should be deep and firm. A light touch massage can leak your kidney energy and cause sickness for the next spring. 
In springtime, a so called Swedish circulatory massage can often jam your energy when the "therapist" massages towards the heart. Because at this season, the liver rules your body. Liver system likes spreading as a tree, and massage should be going "away from the heart". 

2. Do not have massage right after you have a full meal. If you take pills, please wait for at least 3 hours before receiving Chinese massage. Meridian channels in your body see the pills as toxins and a Chinese massage will flush toxins out from your body.

 Chinese medicine also prohibits two "therapists" massaging one patron at the same time. The so called "four-hands" from two different people can never coordinate well enough, and the flow of life force will be driven to wrong directions, and this will result in extreme discomfort or even sickness. 

 4. Do not use red or other bright colors to decorate the walls of your massage room. It will alert your sympathetic nerves, raise your blood pressure and it will do harm to your body when receiving massage. Please avoid using red sofas, red sheets or red dress as well. Avoid "red spas".

Red color is also against the spirit of "zen", which means inner meditation and tranquility. In Chinese Fengshui theory, red color means blood and shall not be used in a zen style spa or massage rooms. It is also against western Christian tradition to use red color in day spas or massage establishements.

5. Please do not place any serious religious figures in the spa. Do not use symbols like dragons or warriors in the spa either. Such figures or symbols exert too much energy and it will interrupt the "chi" of tranquility in the spa room. Dragons are for health & good luck in China, they are often used in restaurants or night clubs, but it should not appear in a massage spa. Also, dragon is fire, and spa is water. They are hostile elements to each other. 

6. Avoid disturbing TV shows or any other disturbing talking or noise. Keep yourself in a "think-of-nothing state. If you do  want to watch something, I recommend those DVDs made for spas. Those natural sound like birds, flowing water, or rain combined with the beauty of gardens or landscape do bring you relaxation.  

7. For foot spas, always use a liner to prevent spread of foot disease. If the spa forgets to use the liner, please remind them at once.

8. When receiving massage, keep your talk at minimum, and when the therapist positions your legs or arms, do not give help.

9. It is not recommended to receive more than 2 hours of massage in a single day. People with serious organ problems or nerve problems should not have massage. Consult your physician.

10. Drink plenty of water after massage to help drain the lactic acid and other toxins from your body.

11. After massage, please avoid long drive, or any other strenuous work.

Thanks for reading.
