Tui Na Therapeutic Massage

A traditional Chinese massage that utilizes a variety of massage techniques. It can range from a very gentle light touch and movement, to deep strong pressure and everything in between.

Tui na Massage (pronounced "tway nah") means "push pull" and is one of the most sophisticated massage systems that exist. It is part of the rich ancient traditional Chinese medical system. It can be used for an enormous range of ailments. Whether it is for relaxation, stress reduction and a calmer, clear mind, more energy, painful muscular-skeletal problems or other health-related conditions. Everyone can benefit from tui na massage.

Not all forms of Tui na are created equal!

There are two main forms of tui na

-  Regular Tui Na

This is the regular style of tui na, this is generally a more vigorous massage with a lot hand techniques and pressure and is the most common and well known form of Chinese massage, it deals mainly with the aspect of the physical body. Around 90 percent of Chinese tuina massage practitioners fall into this category.

- Qigong Tui Na

The lesser well known or practiced form is qigong tui na. Qigong (pronounced "chee gung") means energy development or cultivation. This form of massage is practiced light and gentle or deep and powerful.

Qigong tui na works with the subtle qi (life force energy)  of the body. To practice this the practitioner must be experienced with the practice of qigong and to have developed enough energy and sensitivity to directly work with the qi (energy) inside your body. It is like acupuncture without the needles. It works not only with your muscles, but many other body systems, including your ligaments, tendons, fascia, internal organs, various types of fluids, and nervous system.
