Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage)

TuiNa is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Otherwise know as Chinese Medical Massage, its benefits are wide ranging and very effective not only in the treatment of muscular-skeletal ailments but also uniquely in treatments concerned with specific illnesses of an internal nature.

These internal disharmonies of the body are addressed by a fully qualified and experienced Tui na practitioner who has a complete and thorough understanding of the Chinese medicine principles and is therefore qualified to make a full diagnosis and an individual treatment plan.

Once a treatment plan is formulated your practitioner will apply a number of specialist manual hand techniques on the body and may use passive movements of joints and stretches. These techniques help to stimulate and balance various channels and energetic systems in the body, the use of Acupuncture meridian lines are applied and your practitioner may also use specific acupuncture/ Acupressure points.

When you experience Tui Na it can feel:

  • Deep
  • Releasing
  • Warming
  • Stimulating
  • Invigorating
  • Rhythmic
  • Penetrating
  • Re-energising
  • Relaxing
  • Calming
  • Nourishing

It is also interesting to note that TuiNa can be performed over clothes.
