The Bare Hands Doctor - Master Tim Wong
Setting a Standard in Healing Massage
The Body Maintenance Program (BMP) is a hands-on, oil free, direct-contact treatment which was devised in 1995 by Master Wong in London. It was specifically designed to recondition the body, relax the mind, and to aid in maintaining health and enlivening the body. Working in conjunction with the meridians and pressure points system, this systematic bodywork program provides a deep form of stimulation and elevates energy levels. It combines compression and decompression, and utilizes stretching and rotation of the joints. Deep massage along with pressure on the appropriate areas of the body helps regulate the muscle and tendons, thereby freeing energy and blood stagnation. After treatment, your body will feel lighter, energized and relaxed at the same time.
The Body Maintenance Program is divided into Standard or Full body treatment. The Standard treatment will take 90 minutes. The Full body treatment will take two hours. The recommended treatment for the first-timer is once a week for four weeks. Follow-up treatments should be no less than once a month.
When you come for your appointment, you can select Standard or Full treatment; alternatively, you can tailor the treatment to best suit you. You will be asked to complete a form indicating which areas below you don'twant to be worked on either now or in the future.
Standard Body Treatment #1-8 (90 Minutes)
Full Body Treatment #1-11 (Two Hours)
1. Neck & Shoulders. Starting with the patient in a sitting position, work downwards from the neck to the shoulders. The neck and shoulder massage is designed to relax muscles and joints, as well as remove tension and blockages. This helps to release pains and aches in the neck and shoulders, and free energy flow to the head.
2. Back. With the patient laying face down, the upper and lower back are massaged to stimulate the Governing Vessel, improve energy flow, remove all blockages and spasms of the back muscles, and readjust the alignment of the spine. Working on the back is very powerful for increasing energy and is highly enjoyable.
3. Buttocks. The massage routine moves down from the lower back to the buttocks and the backs of the legs. Buttock massage aims to relax muscles and sciatic nerves, regulate the hip joints, and remove any adhesion and tension. This massage is particularly good for people who sit on a chair to do their work every day or who do a lot of sports or exercise. It relaxes the muscles and tendons and protects the joints fromwears, tears and cramps. It also keeps the lower limbs supple for those who don’t do a lot of exercise.
4. Feet. The purpose of foot massage is to activate the nerve system and stimulate the starting and ending points of the meridian channels; this can benefit the entire body, promote relaxation, improve blood circulation, regulate ankle joints, and release pain. Foot massage is designed to keep the feet in good condition and prevent arthritis from building up. It is also highly enjoyable and deeply relaxing.
5. Head. With the body in supine position, this massage routine promotes blood and oxygen supply to the head and facilitates the function of the brain. Massaging the thyroid gland can improve general health. Head massage not only gives you a wonderful feeling, but is also a natural form of treatment used to relieve headaches, migraines, insomnia, stress and depression.
6. Face. Systematic massage of the face stimulates blood supply to the facial tissues, relaxes facial muscles, releases tension in the mandible, and promotes functions of the glands. This treatment aids in cleansing oil glands; exfoliating the skin; improving skin tone, texture, and elasticity; stimulating circulation; and slowing down the ageing process.
7. Upper Limbs & Hands. Upper limb massage regulates the shoulders and elbows and relaxes the muscles and joints, releasing aches and pains.

This treatment benefits people who do a lot of work with their hands and for sportsmen. It also helps prevent arthritis and R.S.I.
