Tui Na Massage

Tui Na Massage is a mix between acupressure and Shiatsu. Tui Na focuses on specific health problems, especially chronic pain, soreness and numbness of limbs and joints.

About Tui Na Massage

TuiNa Massage is a fundamental part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Its name is composed of two words: “Tui” means “pushing”, and “Na” means “grasping”. Together, they describe an ancient form of bodywork, which aims at adjusting the flow of energy to restore the body's balance.

Like Shiatsu, Tui Na uses rhythmic compression along energy channels of the body, as well as a variety of techniques to manipulate and lubricate the joints. Like acupressure, TuiNa directly affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body at acupressure points.

Ancient wisdom, modern therapy. Among Asian bodyworks, Tui Na is the one that most closely resembles conventional Western massage. It uses similar techniques, such as gliding, kneading, percussion, friction, pulling, rotation, rocking, vibration, and shaking. Whereas a Swedish-style massage mainly aims to relax the body, the intent of a Tui Na massage is also therapeutic. Apart from relaxation, Tui Na focuses on specific health problems, especially chronic pain, soreness and numbness of limbs and joints. It is often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and Chinese herbalism:

Tui Na Massage Benefits

Tui Na massage benefits include dredging the energy channels of the body, lubricating the flow of energy, blood and nutrients as well as soothing the joints, including muscles, tendons and ligaments. It also helps with the relocation of joints, reinforcement of the energy of viscera and restoration of the digestive function. Above all, tui na massage is effective in helping patients with lung discharging phlegm.

Other health conditions where Tuina is helpful are joint pain (such as arthritis), sciatica, muscle spasms, sport injuries (both preventing and alleviating),pain in the back/neck/shoulders, insomnia, constipation,headaches (including migraines) and tension associated with stress.

As a word of guidance, tuina is NOT recommended for patients with fractures, infectious diseases, acute surgery, blood diseases and skin diseases.

What to Expect

Tui Na goes beyond simply working on muscles, bones and joints. It works with the energy of the body at a deeper level. By sensing the patient’s body with the hands, the practitioner is able to assess the distribution of the energy among the different parts of the body, and affect its flow. As with other styles of Asian bodywork, Tui Na is designed to prevent problems, not just correct them. Thanks to its non-invasive, effective, concise and therapeutic properties, Tui Na naturally restores the balance of energy of the body. This way, health is maintained. This is true not just for physical health, but for mental and emotional well-being as well.

The style of Tui Na practiced in China today is closer to the work of chiropractors,

osteopaths, and physical therapists than to that of massage therapists. It’s taught as a separate but equal field of study in schools of Traditional Chinese Medicine, requiring the same level of training as acupuncturists and herbalists. Our registered Chinese Medicine doctor practices Tui Na as well.

Cupping therapy is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice that involves suctioning or vacuuming sections of the body. The cups are heated by swabbing rubbing alcohol on the bottom and then lighting the cup. It can also be done by placing an inverted cup over a flame to aid in suctioning.
