Tui Na massage is an ancient Chinese therapy that is a form of soft tissue massage and acupressure. It can also be combined with acupuncture to bring additional benefits. But how can it help you?
A recent article for Mind Body Green highlighted some of the most common benefits of Tui Na massage, noting that it’s different to what is considered a traditional massage in the western world because Tui Na incorporates twisting, pulling, kneading, turning and pushing.
The news provider also pointed to some of the most common health benefits of having Tui Na massage.
It can be used to successfully ease pain, with the website citing two studies that focused on neck and back pain respectively. Receiving Tui Na over the course of several weeks helped many people with chronic neck pain to see significant improvements, according to one study.
The other found that combining regular Tui Na massage with core exercises helped people to reduce their back pain.
Tui Na can also help improve your balance. The news provider mentioned a study carried out with patients suffering from Parkinson’s, which revealed that their coordination and balance was significantly improved after three months of regular practice. Those receiving Tui Na as part of this study also performed better than the people who practiced strength training and stretching.
Last month, The New Paper reported that a growing number of parents in the USA are taking their children for Tui Na sessions to help deal with a range of ailments.
