Tui na for Everyone
Tui na (twee -nar) is a type of Oriental bodywork which has been used in China for millennia. The techniques of tui na and its uses in treating health problems were documented in a vast volume - The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine, written about 2500 years ago. After such a lengthy period of development and evolution, modern tuina is the most tried and tested hands-on therapy in the world.
Diagnosis and treatment are based on the same principles as acupuncture - the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi (Chi) through the meridians.
Practitioners develop a special awareness of the Qi, and specific techniques are used to work on the meridians and on specific points, to harmonise the balance of Qi and allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
Tui na literally means "pushing" and "grasping" - two of the techniques used in treatment. Tui na methods include the use of hand techniques to massage the soft tissue (muscles and tendons) of the body, acupressure techniques which directly affect the flow of Qi and manipulation techniques to realign the muscles and ligaments.
Tui na treats chronic pain, especially that caused by muscle-skeletal conditions and injuries. Neck, shoulder and back pain and immobility, sciatica and joint pains all respond very well.
Tui na treatment can be either relaxing or stimulating depending on the condition and is an excellent complement to an acupuncture treatment: it offers a unique system of hands-on treatment, which has profound effects.
