Tui Na Massage
An energising massage that works to release blockages in your flow of energy.
With similar principles to acupuncture, this uses the hands and fingers instead of needles, a technique that was developed in China more than 2,000 years ago.
A range of energy draining conditions like menstrual and hormonal disorders as well as emotional imbalances, this is often used in conjunction with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
What to expect…
Your practitioner will begin your consultation by feeling the pulse of your energy flow. From here they will be able to diagnose any imbalances in your energy system and where there are blockages that may need releasing.
The massage combines movements unique to Tui Nai – a compression of the acupuncture points, joint manipulation and mobilisation, with techniques from western massage: effleurage (gliding), petrissage (kneading), vibration, shaking and rocking.
Your practitioner will use their fingers, thumbs, palms, knuckles, forearms, elbows, knees and feet to perform these movements.
