Massage – “Tui Na”

Tui Na” literally means “push and grasp.”  This is perhaps the oldest and most direct form of Chinese Medicine, and has been practiced for thousands of years in China and all over Asia.  It can be used to treat many common issues.

Tui Na massage therapy works directly with the same energetic meridians and acu-points as acupuncture, but no needles are required!  Because these meridians run from our extremities to our head, torso, and organs, we can actually effect the health of the entire body by focusing on these pathways.  For instance, a therapist may apply pressure to areas on the wrists and ankles to reduce tension in the neck and shoulders.

Every treatment can be considered a “whole body” treatment, even when one trouble area is the focus of the session.  This means that problems with the emotions, digestion, and general energy levels can be treated, as well as chronic areas of pain and tension that we might normally see a massage therapist for.

Tui Na is normally done without the use of oils or lotions, as is common with many forms of massage.  No disrobing is necessary.  This added convenience makes it a perfect form of  therapy for people with busy schedules, looking to receive some care in the middle of a hectic day.  Our skilled practitioners have a wide variety of techniques and a deep knowledge of the anatomy of the body.  We can work with all body types, levels of mobility and fitness.
