Tuina (Chinese Massage) is the oldest known system of massage in the world. It is a deep, rhythmic and energising treatment, given through the clothes, with no oil or lotions used. It is sometimes referred to as "acupuncture without needles" as it works on the same systems.
Massage in the loosest sense of the word, Tuina utilises the acupuncture system of points and meridians. The methods include the use of hand and arm techniques to loosen joints & soft tissue (muscles and tendons), stimulation of acupressure points to directly affect the flow of Qi (or Chi) energy, and gentle stretches to realign muscle & ligaments& relax the body. It is more “bodywork" than massage as we know it in the West.
Chinese massage takes massage to another level through its connections with the qi flow. Many of the acupuncture points relate directly to emotional states - and therefore mental states - of the individual, and stimulating them physically results in combined physical and psychological health.
Wonderful for anyone low in energy or with muscular pain/ tension, we also use Tuina for relief of all types of headache, joint stiffness, stress, insomnia, respiratory & digestive problems, IBS, anxiety & panics, ME& general fatigue.
Anyone who loves a deep, stimulating treatment will enjoy this dynamic approach and really feel their body has been put through its paces, resulting in deep muscle relaxation but with a mental "wake-up".
One client reported that she went home & cleaned her cooker, and felt energised for days! Others have said it's like doing a gym workout - but without the effort!
