What is Tui na?
Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese Taoist and martial arts principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into balance. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press, and rub the areas between each of the joints, known as the eight gates, to attempt to open the body's defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles. The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, and massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points. These techniques are claimed to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.
It is vigorous, and can be very deep or very light depending on what is needed. Tui-na is usually performed with the client fully dressed and a sheet draped over the areas being worked.
Tuina techniques work. Tui-na is Chinese massage and physical therapy. It can ease discomfort, improve function, relax or energize depending on which is needed.
Pricing has many options depending on what you need. Packages are available for frequent clients. Each one is set up with you and your budget in mind. Please come and talk and we can build a package specifically for what you need.
I see clients on a very regular basis and welcome new clients to come on board.
Massage is not just for relaxation, it should be in your routine wellness regimen.
Feel Better...Live Better
I look forward to meeting you soon.
