Tui Na is a modality of acupuncture that is similar to a massage in that it can help with all over relaxation and stress,
or specific for deep tissue healing work. *Many of my patients like to add an extra half hour onto their Acupuncture treatments
to provide an extra benefit of relaxation during their sessions.
Tui Na originated in China Ancient depiction of manual therapy techniques more than 2,000 years ago. It is based on traditional
meridian concepts, i.e., the smooth flow of Qi through the meridian channels and collaterals. As with acupuncture, the clearing
of Qi blockages will allow for the enhanced healing. Tui Na includes many manual methods which are applied to the tendons,
muscles, ligaments and joints. They are applied in order to influence the flow of Qi and are oftentimes combined with other
manual techniques which mobilize joints and realign the musculoskeletal and ligamentous relationships.
