Tui’Na like Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tui’Na is a robust, strong, vigorous and deep treatment that contributes strongly to the “feel good factor”. Instead of needles, manual pressure is applied to the fully clothed body. Soft tissue massage and joint manipulation techniques ease pain and liberate powerful healing forces. Its unique rolling action harmonises and re-charges the body’s internal energy.
After the treatment the tissues and muscles will feel both pleasantly relaxed and invigorated. Tui’Na provides complete stimulation of the body’s entire musculoskeletal system, as well as all the internal organs. Since it re-balances the flow of energy, the mind and the emotions will also be affected.
In most cases a Tui’Na treatment leaves the patient feeling enlivened, happy, and sparkling with energy. However, in common with other forms of deep massage, the full effects of Tui’Na may not be felt until a few days after treatment.
After treatment one should try to have an easy day or at least avoid strenuous exercise.
