Tui Na is Chinese medical massage.

It works to balance the body and may be used during a Chinese medicine treatment.

Tui na can be used to enhance the effects of and work alongside acupuncture, as they both work at different levels of the body’s energy.

Your acupuncturist will diagnose and choose your individualised treatment based on what she wishes to achieve in order to correct any imbalances.

How does it differ to other massage?

It is based on the principles of Chinese medicine.

Ultimately we seek to balance yin and yang overall.

The channel/ meridian system is used in order to diagnose and treat external issues and also internal organs. Individual acupuncture points and entire channels can be massaged with special techniques which have been practiced since ancient times.

In China, hospitals still have their own Tui na departments to treat any manner of disease and ailments.

What type of problems can Tui Na treat?

Tui Na has the ability to treat many conditions, including headaches, musculoskeletal conditions, anxiety, stress and many more. Its actions include

  • Promoting blood flow
  • Expelling or clearing heat
  • Warming the body up where necessary
  • Improving the functionality of the internal organs
  • Help to restore normal range of movement to joints
  • Calming the mind and therefore reducing stress and anxiety

Many of the benefits that come with the treatment of Tui Na and Chinese medicine may surprise you. Our energy or “qi” can easily become stuck and we are all about free flowing that energy for you so that you feel better and life begins to flow more smoothly in body and mind.- Danielle
