If you enjoy massage, then you’ll love Tui Na (two-ee-na)! It’s a type of Chinese medical massage used separately or in combination with acupuncture treatments. Tui Na combines massage, acupressure, and acupuncture point therapy to reduce pain and tension by stimulating the flow of blood and energy known as Qi (chee). Qi refers to the force that enables our body’s metabolic processes ~ like digesting food, moving blood and breathing. When we experience illness, the flow of Qi is interrupted causing pain, stiffness, nausea, inflammation, etc.
Tui Na is an excellent tool for balancing the flow of Qi and treating acute or chronic illness. Musculoskeletal pain, headaches, PMS, fatigue, stress, fibromyalgia, and insomnia are a few of the more common ailments treated using this type of medical massage. Tui Na is safe and effective for children, adults, and the elderly and can be enjoyed while fully or partially clothed.
