Do you like the idea & philosophy behind acupuncture but do not like the idea of needles? Why not try Tui na Massage. Tui na uses a wide range of massage techniques utilising finger, hand and elbow pressure, grasping, stretching, kneading and rubbing to stimulate the body’s meridians and acupressure points. These can be applied as powerful physical techniques or used gently for more subtle energy work.
Tui na focuses on the needs of the individual & treatment is based on a full Chinese Medical diagnosis which targets the roots as well as the symptoms of specific conditions. Based on the principle that pain and disease are signs of blockage or disharmony, treatment encourages the free flow of Qi or vital energy, therefore restoring balance in the body. Whilst a relatively new therapy in this country Tui na was first used in China over 2000 years ago and is still widely used today throughout China where all major hospitals have an Acupuncture and Tui na department.
