Acupressure Massage

During this extended period of Stay-at-Home online classes, Xin Tian, a licensed acupuncturist and a Shen Long Tai Chi Chuan student, guided us through acupressure massage exercises to supplement our daily Tai Chi Chuan practices.


Consult your doctors and acupuncturist when you need medical treatments.

Acupressure DOES NOT replace any medical treatments.
