Chinese Tui Na was called ‘An Mo’ or massage in ancient times. The term Tui Na was first seen during the Ming Dynasty. Chinese Tui Na is a therapeutic approach guided by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and was first used to treat paediatric disease through massage manipulations. Tui Na is a very important component of Chinese Medicine alongside acupuncture and herbal prescription.
Today Tui Na has become very advanced in its treatment for many diseases. Used in many of the hospitals in China today in the front line of healthcare, whereas in the west these complaints are not seen in our clinics until they become chronic many days after the incident. (tuinauk.com)
Tui Na is a fully clothed massage that has a powerful effect on various injuries and Structural problems/pain.
I nearly always use Tui Na along side acupuncture when treating muscular skeletal issues.
The style’s of massage I offer includes- traditional Swedish techniques / Neuromuscular work / Acupressure (no needles) / Trigger Point release / Deep tissue and Stretching/ Pre blended Aromatherapy massage for relaxation.
Most massage treatments I offer use a variety of techniques which best suit you as an individual or the specific problem we are treating. When having a session of Acupuncture it is likely that massage will be part of your treatment along with the needling. However, appointments just for massage can be booked.
Cupping therapy and Gua sha may also be used as part of your massage treatment if appropriate (read more about this on the cupping section).
