What is Tui Na?
Tui Na is an Oriental Bodywork Therapy, Tui meaning “push” and Na meaning “grasp”.
Practised in China for more than 4000 years Tui Na is the deeply penetrating and vigorous massage therapy provided within the Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) system.
A casual observer watching a session sees what appears to be a thorough workout for the soft tissues and joints, but the practitioner aims to do more than this. Attention is focused on meridians and selected acupuncture points. They are massaged in different ways to remove all blockages to the flow of Qi.
Tui Na treats chronic pain , especially that caused by muscle-skeletal conditions and injuries. Neck, shoulder and back pain and immobility, sciatica and ‘tennis elbow’ all respond very well. It is, however, impossible to treat a specific condition with Tui Na without improving the overall Qi status of the body. This means that headaches, migraines, IBS, constipation, PMS and a whole range of emotional problems can also be treated.
Sessions last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Depending on the specific problems of the client, they usually return for additional treatments. The client usually feels relaxed but energized by the treatment.
In a typical session, the client, wearing loose clothing and no shoes, lies on a table. The practitioner examines the specific problems of the client and begins to apply a specific treatment protocol. The major focus of application is upon specific pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians, and muscles and joints.
