Tui Na is a form of Chinese medicinal bodywork. It is a massage like therapy. Tui Na means “pushing/grasping”. It uses a variety of hand techniques to improve the flow of energy through the meridians of the body. Tui Na is used not only to treat painful conditions involving muscles, joints and tendons but also orthopedic problems and stress reduction. It is used to improve blood circulation and metabolism, remove stagnation and toxins, eliminate fatigue and strengthen the body. Our practitioner can use this type of body work as a treatment alone or integrate into your treatment plan as a complimentary part to acupuncture, laser acupuncture, etc.
This Massage based Chinese body work helps harmonize the body physically, emotionally and spiritually.
For those who are more sensitive or unable to tolerate acupuncture needles we can provide a needless treatment with the use of special pressure techniques on the acupuncture points thereby activating energy flow and circulation. Usually we combine this technique with Tui Na.
