Tuina (Chinese Healing Massage)

What is it and what I can expect?

TuiNa involves a hands-on healing massage which can range from 10-60 minutes long during which the illness is treated by manipulating areas of the body to correct imbalance, relieve pain and encourage a healthy flow of Qi.

TuiNa, along with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, are the main components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As such, TuiNa can be used to treat specific areas, or it can be used to improve the overall Qi or energy flow throughout the body. Because TuiNa is a complete system, the treatment often helps both these components at the same time. TuiNa is thought to be the oldest system of bodywork practiced today.

What is it best for?

Tuina massage can be beneficial when treating chronic or acute pain, and especially for muscular-skeletal conditions, injuries and disease. Examples may include;

  • Back, neck & shoulder pain
  • Immobility problems
  • sciatica
  • stress, anxiety & depression
