Tui Na (tuina) massage is traditional Chinese therapeutic massage that has been practiced for thousands of years, evidence suggests it was used as far back as the Shang Dynasty of China, 1700 B.C.E.
Tuina massage is a therapeutic tool often used with acupuncture or other TCM therapies, it can also be used for simple and effective relaxation and stress relief, a neck, shoulder and back massage for instance. It is excellent for treating musculoskeletal disorders and with knowledge of points and channels it can be used to treat a wide range of pathologies including stress related disorders, digestive, respiratory and reproductive problems.
Tuina and acupressure when administered by a skilled and caring practitioner is suitable for infants, children, adults and the elderly. I often combine treatments so a typical session may include acupuncture and or cupping combined with local tuina massage.
