Tui na massage

Tui na massage is a form of massage performed through clothing, using various lifting, stretching, stroking, pushing and grasping massage techniques. These are accompanied by acupressure and joint manipulation resulting in a relaxing and powerfully energising massage. Whilst Tui Na is renowned for its effectiveness in the treatment of musculo-skeletal conditions, such as soft tissue injuries, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, joint inflammation, pain and sprains, it is also effective for problems such as headaches and migraine, anxiety and panic attacks, digestive dysfunction, circulatory problems, hormonal imbalance, stress and related conditions amongst others.
Tui na can help to rebalance both the flow of Qi and the muscles and joints through gentle, but stimulating massage techniques. These techniques work on the energy channels which help remove blockages and restore health.

Treatment with Tui Na Massage is available, either on its own, or in combination with acupuncture.

  • Relief from stress, tension headaches and tight jaw
  • Improves muscle tone and breaks down tension in the muscles
