Tui Na Massage and Acupressure

 

Tui Na is a therapeutic massage based on the meridian system that guides acupuncture. It promotes the flow of our vital energy, 'chi', along the meridians thus nourishing our organs and bodies. Tu Na is much more then a typical relaxing or circulation enhancing massage. It often involves rigorous push-pull movements and deep tissue work but includes a range of different movements. It involves applying pressure to acupuncture points, meridians and groups of muscles. It is particularly well suited to rehabilitation pf sports and other injuries. It has a long history of being used for treatment for children as they respond so well to this very safe and effective therapy.

Acupressure is the application of pressure to acupuncture points by the fingers. It can be thought of as 'needleless acupuncture' and seeks the same results: relieving blockages along the meridians and assisting the flow of 'chi' through our bodies. Acupressure has a wide range of uses from enhancing acupuncture treatment to relieving simple pain symptoms and even being the primary treatment for a variety of conditions.
