Daoyin Tao

Chinese Face, Neck and Shoulder Massage


Pronounced DOW YIN TOW – as in TOWn, this exciting complementary therapy reflects the Oriental and Western philosophies toward health, healing and well-being which form the basis of this therapy.

Daoyin Tao releases trapped and stagnant energy, thus allowing the body to begin the process of healing itself from within, often at the deepest levels.

Many common ailments we “live with” are ideally suited to the deep healing potential of this complementary therapy.

The original skills which underpin Daoyin Tao are still practised today in clinics and hospitals throughout China; however, for Daoyin Tao they have been adapted to suit the Western preference for a more gentle, flowing massage.

What happens during a treatment?

By using a holistic approach, the aim is to identify how best Daoyin Tao can assist you towards better balanced health and well-being.

An initial private and confidential consultation will help your practitioner to design an individual treatment for you.

To receive the treatment you will be asked to make your neck and shoulders accessible. Necklaces, earrings and hair accessories need to be removed. You will lie on your back, covered with a towel or blanket, with your head supported. The contact will be to your shoulders, neck, face and ears with scalp optional. Any concerns about your hair should be minimal as Daoyin Tao practitioners are trained to avoid using excessive oil.

Your treatment will last 30 minutes. Some practitioners may combine Daoyin Tao with another therapy to make your overall treatment last an hour , or even longer. Charges will vary accordingly.

At the end of your treatment, after a few minutes of quiet time to yourself, you will be offered a drink of water to refresh yourself.

How Does Daoyin Tao Work?

Slow, gentle, flowing techniques combined with specific work on a variety of carefully selected points on the face, neck and shoulders produce an amazingly effective synergy.

Daoyin Tao meets the individual at their point of need. Some would call it an energy healing therapy, and they would be equally right, alongside those who witness the positive changes in physical conditions and symptoms. Ultimately, Daoyin Tao is a totally holistic therapy.

Optimum benefit is usually gained from three to four sessions received on a weekly basis, as the effect is cumulative. Thereafter, monthly maintenance sessions are ideal for preventative healthcare.

Daoyin Tao is ideal for:

  • Relaxing
  • Rebalancing
  • Revitalising
  • Rejuvenating
  • Decongesting
  • Pain and Discomfort

  • I have known Caroline for many years, of which Caroline has carried out the treatment of Reflexology, and the occasional Reiki. Caroline is a truly amazing person, and nothing is too much trouble. I am a MS sufferer, which is complicated in itself, but I have a big problem with trigeminal neuralgia, and two years ago suffered a stroke. I really don’t know how I would have coped IF IT WASN’T FOR Caroline’s cheery smile and gentle handling. She understands me and my body and exactly what areas to concentrate on, depending on how I am feeling. But whatever she does for my particular aches and pains that day, I always feel refreshed and more energetic afterwards.
