Tui Na, being a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, utilizes the same diagnostic techniques, energy points and meridians as those in acupuncture. Instead of needles, Tui Na applies deep pressure in addition to other techniques to stimulate the meridians. These Meridians connect all of the internal organs and various tissue structures throughout the entire body.
Tui Na uses a variety of hand techniques and passive/active stretching to restore and correct anatomical muscular-skeletal interaction, joint disorder, neuro-muscular irregularities, to increase the circulation of Qi and Blood, to release toxins, facilitate healing and prevent further injury.
Tui Na Massage relieves stress and induces a deep relaxation affecting the energetic, mental, emotional, and physical layers of the body promoting vitality and general overall well-being.
Additional treatment modalities typically combined with Tui Na massage are Gua Sha and Fire Cupping.
