Tui Na (or tuina) is a form of massage, which uses the theory of traditional Chinese medicine.
It is a highly advanced system of massage which can be used to treat both physical and emotional problems. The effects are often deep and long-lasting but the techniques are gentle.
In a typical session, the client lies on a massage table. The practitioner will mainly focus upon specific pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians, muscles and joints. The sessions usually last from 30 to 45 minutes and, depending on the specific problems of the client, there may be follow up treatments. Clients often say they feel relaxed and energized by tui na treatment.
