Tui Na is an oriental bodywork massage inseparable from Chinese Medicine philosophy. Sometimes referred to as Medical Massage, the manipulation techniques harmonise the flow of Qi along the Meridians. Physically, Tui Na is a series of pressing, tapping and kneading techniques. Tui Na can range from light stroking techniques to deep-tissue work. The Tui Na Practitioner concentrates on specific acupressure points, trigger points and the muscles and joints.
How Long Does A Treatment Last?
A Tui Na treatment can last from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Can Anyone Have A Tui Na Treatment?
Like all Chinese Medicine treatments, a thorough consultation will be taken at the start of the session. Tui Na has no side effects and is well suited for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and stress related disorders of the digestive and respiratory system. Tui Na however, cannot be administered when a person is contra-indicated, such as fractures or open wounds.
What To Expect In A Tui Na Treatment
Once the consultation has been completed, Tui Na is applied to the clothed body. The Practitioner will ask you lie on a couch or sit in a chair. Each technique requires movement as well as pressure. You might feel sore after the first treatment but most patients adjust to the deep pressure after two or three sessions.
Wise Owl: Did you know that the British Acupuncture Council conducted a survey that revealed Tui Na was the most popular treatment used in conjunction with Acupuncture?
