Pronounced “twee-Nah,” Tui Na massage is a traditional Chinese medicine modality that addresses specific patterns of disharmony in the body. It is a form of deep tissue work and blends well with other massage styles.

Benefits of TuiNa Massage

Here are the many benefits of Tui Na massage people are discovering every day.

TuiNa Massage can be used with acupuncture.

Because it is a traditional Chinese medicine form and employs the same principles, Tui Na massage can also complement acupuncture treatment. Using both treatment modalities can effectively work with energy and address and restore its flow.

It relieves a variety of disorders.

Tui Na massage can relieve multiple disorders, including insomnia, constipation, headaches, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, and emotional problems. It can also treat disorders related to digestive, respiratory, and reproductive systems. Many people seek treatment for stiff neck, distension of shoulders, sciatica, and sore back.

Tui Na can treat specific areas or improve the overall Qi or energy flow throughout the body. Because Tui Na is a complete system, the treatment often helps both these components simultaneously.

Tui Na massage integrates well with many different modalities.

A treatment such as Tui Na can be integrated with traditional medicine. In addition, a massage therapist can incorporate TuiNa massage with other forms of alternative medicine or massage. Incorporate TuiNa massage with deep tissue, sports massage, neuromuscular bodywork, and myofascial release is also a great option.

Massage may be an effective option, whether you are suffering from a physical illness or looking for a holistic approach to achieving overall wellness.

Medical therapy was often classified as either “external” or “internal” treatment in ancient China. Tui na was one of the external methods suitable for the elderly population and infants. In modern China, many hospitals include tui na as a standard aspect of treatment, with specialization for infants, adults, orthopedics, traumatology, cosmetology, rehabilitation, and sports medicine. In the West, tui na is a part of the curriculum at some acupuncture schools.
