What is Tuina
Tuina is a Chinese massage therapy that was developed primarily to treat pain but it has also developed to treat many other common ailments. Tuina comes from two words, "tui" to push and "na" to grasp.
How does Tuina work?
The Tuina massage uses the hands to press on key points on the surface of the body to help it to stimulate its own natural healing process. It uses the same points and meridians that are used in Acupuncture, Acupressure and Shiatsu. These points are connected in a network and when stimulated, they release the tension that has been stored in the body which helps to increase the body's circulation of blood and nutrients to aid its own healing process.
What does Tuina treatment involve?
Most appointments last 30 - 60 minutes.
After taking medical details, the Tuina therapist will massage the body using specific techniques to connect the points to facilitate healing. After the massage, some advice may given about lifestyle or dietary details to further enhance the healing process. The number of appointments depends on the individual.
What can Tuina help?
Migraines, headaches, muscle pain, rheumatoid arthritis, strains, menstrual pain, cramps, sports and exercise injuries, vertigo, sleep disorders, back pain and poor circulation.
