Tui Na massage is a Chinese alternative medicine similar to Shiatsu with a range of techniques and indications forming a system for manual therapeutics. It combines the names of the hand techniques for ‘tui’ meaning to push and ‘na’ meaning to lift and squeeze and involves a range of full body stretches and hand movements. Stimulation of the acupoints (energy channels) is done by using knuckles, palms, fingers and thumbs to target key muscle groups range from light and soothing to strong and invigorating. Tuina massage is vigorous and involves quite a lot of kneading, rubbing and manipulation to ease muscle tension, stimulate blood flow and clear blockages and stagnation of Qi.
The massage treatment is usually performed dry with a towel between you and the therapist without the use of oils. The movements are fast and the massage of acupuncture points can be vigorous at times so be prepared as it may feel strange to those who are not familiar with Tuina massage therapy at first.
