Gan Jin Massage

Gan Jin Massage is a specialized massage therapy technique rooted in traditional healing practices, particularly inspired by gua sha strokes. However, instead of the hands or traditional gua sha tools, a large Ganjin stick is used for this therapy. The therapy focuses on stimulating specific areas of the body, including the stomach, spleen, kidneys, back, thighs, and buttocks, to enhance circulation, alleviate tension, and promote overall well-being.

How Gan Jin Massage works

Gan Jin Massage works by utilizing the unique properties of the Ganjin stick to apply controlled pressure and strokes to targeted areas of the body.

Your Gan Jin Massage session begins with a thorough consultation with a trained therapist. During this consultation, you'll discuss your health concerns, goals, and any specific areas of focus.

Benefits of Gan Jin Massage


Improved Circulation: Gan Jin Massage stimulates both blood and lymphatic circulation in the targeted areas. Enhanced circulation promotes the efficient transport of oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells throughout the body, resulting in improved overall health.


Detoxification: By promoting lymphatic flow and blood circulation, Gan Jin Massage helps the body eliminate excess water and toxins. This detoxification process can leave you feeling refreshed and lighter.


Stress Reduction: The therapy induces a deep sense of relaxation and can help reduce stress and tension. The controlled pressure and soothing strokes with the Ganjin stick calm the nervous system, promoting emotional well-being.


Digestive Support: Focusing on the stomach and spleen areas, Gan Jin Massage can support digestive health. Improved circulation in these regions can aid in the digestive process, potentially alleviating issues such as bloating and discomfort.


Enhanced Metabolism: Some individuals experience a boost in metabolism following Gan Jin Massage sessions. The therapy supports metabolic processes by increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, which may aid in weight management and overall vitality.
