Tuīná

Tuī   means to push. Ná   means to take hold of.

back massage Tuīná is a form of manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping. As with acupuncture, tuīná stimulates the meridians and acupressure points to influence the flow of Qì.

The Chinese believe it to be invaluable in the treatment of musculo-skeletal conditions, and are also known to use it to address other conditions such as menstrual problems, headaches, coughs and rhinitis.

It uses gentle yet firm massage techniques, and prior to tuīná treatment a case history will be compiled to identify underlying patterns of imbalance, which can then be addressed.
