Brian’s tai chi-based style of bodywork integrates a gentle form of meridian massage (TuiNa), acupuncture, medical qigong, Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure, herbs, and magnet therapy.

Sessions generally begin with a dynamic, yet soft style of Tui Na that relaxes and opens the body.  Brian’s Tui Na is based on a listening touch that feels how the body moves (or doesn’t move) and helps to return the body to balance and alignment. Brian is well known for his skillful ability to meet clients wherever they are at and then create a session that leaves them feeling enlivened and resilient.
