Tui na Massage
Most people think of having a massage for either muscle pain or to relax. Tui na can aid with both. It can help damaged muscles to repair by breaking down adhesions and scar tissue at the local level to increase the flow of blood and Qi. It can help re-balance the body by improving the flow of Qi thereby aiding relaxation.
Tui na may also help with many other conditions including headache, migraine, rheumatoid arthritis, cramps, menstrual pain, back pain and poor energy. The advantage of Tui na is that it focuses on maintaining overall balance within the body. Anyone who wants to avoid drugs should consider the use of massage and acupuncture to help relieve pain.
The massage itself may be vigorous or gentle depending on the nature of the problem being presented. A major difference between this and other massages is that it is carried out through the patient’s clothing, or through a sheet. Therefore it is advisable to wear loose, light weight clothing when coming for treatment.
