Treatment – Tui Na (Chinese Massage)
Tui Na is the name given to the deep tissue massage treatment which is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Tui Na aims to realign soft tissue and bone, energise the body and treat internal disease. It is often referred to as Chinese medical massage.
When used with acupuncture and/or other Chinese medical treatments, Tui Na can relieve pain, reduce swelling, relax muscle spasms, stimulate circulation and disperse accumulation of Qi, Blood and fluids. It can also have a very calming effect to relieve feelings of stress or anxiety.
Physically, Tui Na is a series of pressing, tapping and kneading manipulations that removes blockages along the body’s Channels (pathways in the body) and stimulates the flow of Qi (“vital energy”) and blood to promote healing. Massage techniques range from light manipulations to deep-tissue work.
Tui Na can treat, effectively, a variety of conditions including back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, migraine, digestive disorders, stress, amongst other conditions.
“I had had very bad sciatica for about 6 years, on and off, before I went to Maria. It was affecting my sleep and my daily life. I had tried alternative medicine as well as conventional medicince, but I only ever got brief relief. Maria used acupuncture and a heat lamp on me and then massaged a warm oil into my lower back before I left. After that first treatment I was amazed how I felt! I had almost immediate relief and, a week later, at my second treatment, the pain had almost completely gone! It felt great to finally be able to enjoy a normal, daily routine again. I will definitely return to Maria in the future and would recommend her to anyone.” Tina
“I had a tennis-induced shoulder injury when I went to Maria. My right shoulder felt very tight and I had difficulty moving it. Maria treated me with acupuncture, followed by cupping and Tui Na. The treatment was very relaxing and, more importantly, I have had no trouble with my shoulder since!” Marco
