Tui Na is a form of sports and medical massage mainly used in treatment of musculoskeletal pain or injuries. With the combination of massage, Acupuncture, manipulation, joint mobilization with stretching, Tui Na helps to allow the blood and body fluids to flow through the body unobstructed, therefore assisting the body to recover from injury or disease to address specific patterns of disharmony. Tui Na therapy uses what is popularly known as “Acupressure” where the practitioner uses finger pressure instead of Acupuncture needles to stimulate the Acupuncture points.
When muscles and body tissue become undernourished caused by compression to the vessels which supply the blood to local or distal areas, this can lead to tension and further problems. Tui Na therapy can help to maintain stability to the tissues creating a sense of well-being and relaxation. Creating balance within the muscle and tissues helps the blood and body fluids to therefore move freely within the body. Tui Na treatment is sometimes given in conjunction with Acupuncture or cupping.
