Tui Na is Chinese massage therapy developed specifically for healing. Tui Na (pronounced Twee-Na) is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. Tui means ‘to push’ and Na means ‘to grasp’. It is the name given to describe a complete body therapy at the root of traditional Chinese medical philosophy based on health and well being.
Most hospitals in China have specialised Tui Na departments, treating physical and emotional conditions ranging from musculoskeletal disorder, neurological dysfunction, sports injury, exercise rehabilitation through to emotional trauma and internal disesase.
Tui Na utilises the same energetic system used in acupuncture, but treats without the use of needles. A network of channels (meridians) cover the entire body. Along these channels there are a large number of points which have been shown to exert an important energetic influence.
By utilising a mixture of techniques including acupressure, using finger, thumb, hand, arm and elbow movements, combined with rolling, pressing, pushing, stroking and grasping techniques, the aim is to increase the flow of energy within the body and promote healing. Joint manipulation, gentle stretching and postural adjustment techniques can support management of certain conditions, such as back pain, sciatica, sports injury and soft tissue (muscle & tendon) dysfunction.

Qi Gong Tuina
Qi Gong Tui Na is a fundamental element to traditional Chinese medicine. Within all aspects of Chinese medical practice is the concept of Qi (chi) literally meaning 'life force'. It is the flow of Qi which can influence the harmony within the physical and spiritual body.
Using traditional Taoist healing techniques, Qi Gong Tui Na helps to stimulate the movement of Qi and blood within the body, loosening muscles, reducing swelling, healing injuries to joints and bones, enhancing the function of internal organs, strengthening the nervous system and giving resistance to disease.
Qi gong Tui Na is a gentle and softer treatment compared to main stream Tui Na. When applied directly to acupuncture points and channels, or to specific areas of the body where a blockage has occurred, this subtle technique has the ability to create lasting change.
This treatment is deeply relaxing, working directly with the body’s energy by reducing physical and emotional blockages, often held within ourselves. This treatment moves you away from tension and pain, into softness and comfort, helping to re-educate the body to its natural healing pattern.
