Tui Na (Massage)

Tui Na (pronounced twee-nah) is a noninvasive alternative massage technique that relies on the stimulation of acupoints (meridian points). This traditional Chinese massage employs over a dozen different techniques such as stroking, kneading, rubbing, pressing, knocking, and vibrating. Tui Na is a technique similar
in practice to Shiatsu and acupressure massage. Due to its noninvasive nature, Tui Na is often used as an alternative to acupuncture.

Rooted from TCM theories, including the use of channels and points, Tui Na is excellent for strengthening the body's immune system, improving circulation, and elimination of diseases. Tui Na is highly tuned towards the treatment of specific musculoskeletal disorders and chronic stress-related disorders of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive system.

Due to the nature of Tui Na, it is not recommended for those seeking a relaxing, mild, or sedating massage. It intends to focus on a specific area of Qi stimulation, in contrast to supplying the generalized approach of other common massage styles.

Sessions generally last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. However depending on your specific needs, the physician may suggest additional treatment. For more information, please contact our offices and speak to our certified Tui Na practitioners to arrange an assessment.
