What is Tui Na massage.
An ancient medical massage therapy for a modern world.
In China, Tui Na therapeutic massage is an integral part of Chinese Medicine, just like acupuncture and herbal medicine. Although it is relatively new to the West, the first book describing the principles and techniques dates back to over 3000 years ago. It makes it the forefather of all forms of massage and bodywork practiced today, from shiatsu to osteopathy.
Tui Na is renowned for its effectiveness in treating musculoskeletal conditions, on its own or combined with acupuncture. However, as part of Chinese Medicine, it is also effective for internal problems, such as:
- Menstrual and Menopausal symptoms
- Digestive disorders
- Fatigue / Long Covid
