Tui Na (pronounced ‘twee-nah’) massage is a complete bodywork healing system, like acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
There is a recognised network of 12 paired meridians – one member of each pair on the right side of the body and the other on the left. There are also two unpaired meridians that encircle the trunk and the head in the mid-line.
These meridians are not like vessels, they have no anatomical structure but they are energy pathways through the body.
At irregular intervals along the meridians there are specific points (the acu-points of acupuncture) where pressure, needles or heat can affect the way energy flows through the meridian. This effect can manifest itself on some part of the meridian quite distant from where the stimulus is applied.
When energy flow is disturbed anywhere in the body, the imbalance that results can cause pain, stiffness, sickness – even emotional pain.
Tui Na is one of the best ways of achieving balance in the body. A Casual observer watching a session sees what appears to be a thorough workout for the soft tissues and joints, but the practitioner aims to do more than this. Attention is focused on meridians and selected Acu-points points.
In China, Tui Na is used for conditions that, in the West, would be treated by osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists or with drugs.
Tui Na treats chronic pain, especially that caused by muscle-skeletal conditions and injuries. Neck, shoulder and back pain and immobility, sciatica and ‘tennis elbow’ all respond very well.
Furthermore Tui Na can also treat headaches, migraines, IBS, constipation, PMS and a whole range of emotional problems.
It is a very vigorous massage; every technique requires movement as well as pressure, After the first session you may feel a little sore but after two or three more most people adjust to the deep pressure.
Depending on the type of Tui Na treatment you have, you might leave feeling a bit light headed. Some patients experience sleepiness while others feel supercharged. Almost always, everyone feels better after Tui Na.
