TUI NA MASSAGE
Complementary Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine
May help with
Ankle / wrist pain
Tuina is an ancient healing art that uses the hands to press on key points on the surface of the body. When points are stimulated, they release tension, increase circulation, and help the body's healing process.
For over two hundred years, Tuina has been used in place of physiotherapy, osteopathy, and chiropractic in China and it is gaining recognition throughout the world as an effective alternative to these therapies. Since 2010, Tuina has been recognised in China as a distinct medical system.
Tuina massage offers a wide range of benefits, both physiological and psychological, increasing well-being and speeding up the body’s ability to heal itself.
What to expect:
A typical treatment is 30 minutes long.
You may be asked to undress (keep underwear on) while the massage therapist is out of the room, and lie down under a sheet on a padded massage table, or you may stay partially dressed, depending on the appropriate treatment plan.
Tuina is translated as Tui - ‘Push’ and Na -‘Grasp’. A Tuina practitioner can stimulate many points during a single treatment and dredge many more channels/meridians compared to acupuncture.
Tuina can also work on the muscles near a trauma and break down adhesions and scar tissue at the local level to increase the blood flow, nutrients, and oxygen (chi) to carry away damaged tissue.
