About Needles and Massage
Tui-Na is a deep-tissue medicinal massage therapy from China. Literally the words Tui and Na mean pushing and holding. Tui-Na is thousands of years old and is one of the earliest medical forms to treat disease and today Tui-Na is used in Chinese hospitals to deal with various complaints such as muscle strain, back problems, injuries and a whole range of internal disorders, as well as to prevent disease.
Tui-Na deep tissue massage loosens tight muscles, helps lymphatic drainage, and is very effective in breaking down scar tissue to accelerate healing. During treatment you remain fully clothed, although Chinese medicinal oils may be used after massage on the neck, lower back or on other areas of pain to bring warmth and increase the circulation of Qi and Blood to help relieve any pain. It is best to wear comfortable non-restrictive clothing - (cotton tracksuit; T-shirt and leggings; or similar are ideal).
Tui-Na treats the whole person, affecting both the physical and emotional imbalances. Tui-Na therapy, which uses fingers, hands and elbows, affects the flow of Blood and Qi (energy) in the body, to restore harmony. As well as working at the subtler energy level, structural disorders of the musculo-skeletal system can also be addressed.
My friendly and gentle manner belies the healing and powerful quality of this type of massage.
