Tui na is a style of massage with guiding principles from within the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system. The Chinese characters “??” literally mean “push” and “sieze”, thus reflecting the objective nature of the “massage”. Since tui na works by the same system as acupuncture, namely meridian theory, it is sometimes referred to as “acupressure”. Indeed, manual pressure to stimulate acupoints is one technique used in tui na.
The tui na practitioner will utilize a variety of techniques to relax the soft tissues and restore circulation. It can be used to treat internal disorders, but commonly used to treat musculoskeletal conditions.
So if you are experiencing neck and shoulder tension from sitting at your desk, or chronic low back pain from standing long periods of time, you will experience optimal relief from 10 to 20 minutes of Tui Na in addition to your acupuncture treatment.
