What is Daoyin Tao?

This is a new therapy – pronounced Dow Yin Tow – a synergy of ancient Chinese and Modern Western massage techniques, harmoniously blended to create a widely applicable method which releases trapped and stagnant energy, thus allowing the body to begin the process of healing itself from within, often at the deepest levels.

I am currently taking a sabbatical and am NOT taking on NEW clients. My existing clients are aware of this and can be assured of my continued service, but presently I simply do not have the time to take on new work. However, I will maintain this website as a source of free information on the various therapies and treatments I personally offer.

A Brief History of Daoyin Tao

This new therapy was originated and developed by Anna-Louise Haigh who used a wide variety of skills drawn from learning in Chinese hospitals and clinics and also on her 14 years’ experience as a complementary healthcare practitioner, teacher, lecturer and writer. The original skills on which DYT is based, are stilled practiced in clinics and hospitals throughout China today. Anna-Louise Haigh adapted these skills to suit the Western preference and create a more gentle flowing massage.

An hour is allowed for the treatment which starts with a full case history being taken. The DYT treatment itself lasts about half an hour with the recipient semi-reclined whilst the head, neck and shoulders are gently worked.
