What's Tui Na?
Tui Na (Medical massage) is the Chinese Medicine version of Osteopathy, physical therapy. It is often used in along with acupuncture as well as a standalone treatment. It is a form of soft tissue massage & acupressure that, when done properly, can be very effective in treating misalignment in your body, pain, sports injuries, and orthopaedic problems.
Muscular imbalances can affect posture, spinal alignment and put place pressure on nerves branching off of the spinal cord. If any of these symptoms are present it can lead to a number of health issues including, but not limited to pain, numbness, burning, tension, stress and a reduction in your overall health & vitality. The cause of any of these can be from physical pressure, chemical imbalances and emotional stress.
Where can it help?
Tui Na treats the cause of the symptoms but rather than the symptoms themselves. With every person, it’s important to diagnose what is causing the problem or pain. This comprises of testing the nervous system and muscles to see what is working and what isn’t.
