Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage
Treat the Form,
Treat the Function
Before the use of needles, cups, or gua sha was Tui Na.
Designed to be performed through clothing, the techniques of this massage range from light to deep in pressure, making sure to warm the body up before getting in to those much needed areas.
The difference in this massage is in the rocking nature of most of the techniques. Producing a calming affect on the nervous system, this helps the body relax into the deeper techniques and allows the muscles an easier time to let go. The use of stretches and passive range of motion then helps lubricate joints to improve overall function of the body.
