Tui Na is a therapeutic massage, using various manipulation methods according to the meridian and collateral theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is similar to acupuncture but instead of needles, different manipulation methods are used to treat a range of health problems. But why would you choose Tui Na and what does it do? The Secret Oasis Spa in Fulham, West London had the following points to make…
1) Tui Na can focus on specific problems
Whether you have multiple issues you want to address, or have just had enough of pain and discomfort in a certain area, Tui Na can help. It can offer targeted therapeutic massage directly addressing your areas of concern, while also bringing the whole body back into balance.
2) Tui Na is fantastic for musculoskeletal conditions
Musculoskeletal disorders often induce pain in the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons, and structures that support limbs, neck and back. A lot of people have Tui Na to address issues in the neck, shoulders, hips, back, arms, thighs, legs and ankles. It is also very effective in releasing muscle spasms and tightness and has a beneficial effect on chronic conditions such as arthritis and sciatica.
3) Tui Na can relieve pain
Suffer from headaches, migraines, constipation, IBS or PMT? Or do you have issues with your respiratory, digestive or reproductive systems? Tui Na has helped many reduce their pain spiral and reduce symptoms.
4) Tui Na can help with emotional and mental issues
Tui Na focuses on bringing both the physical and mental self back into balance. It induces a deep state of relaxation, helping to restore harmony to mind and body. If you are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed then this is an excellent massage technique for you. It can even help with conditions such as insomnia too.
5) Tui Na can be used with other therapies
Many people combine Tu Nai with acupuncture and Chinese herbs for the ultimate Chinese Medicine treatment.
