Tui Na (translated as ‘pushing’ and ‘grasping’) is an Oriental bodywork therapy that has been used in China for more than 2000 years.

It is a blend of rhythmic manipulation and pressure of the soft tissue along the meridians of the body and at specific acupuncture points.

It can be gentle or vigorous depending on the condition treated and the general health state of the patient.

Tui Na can improve blood flow and increase range of motion; it’s mainly – but not exclusively - used to treat musculoskeletal tightness and pain and it plays an important role in physical rehabilitation. Tui na is suitable for all ages. Everyone can enjoy the benefits of a Tui na massage at any stage in life, from infancy through to old age.

In adult patients, Tui Na is often combined with Acupuncture to improve results and maximise its effectiveness. In infants and children, however, Tui Na is often used on its own and very effective to treat digestive issues (colic, constipation) or respiratory conditions.

It can also be used during pregnancy to help with issues that may arise during the various stages such as sciatic pain, Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD)/ Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP), anxiety and/or labour induction.

Tui Na is similar to Shiatsu in that it uses the Traditional Chinese Medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians of the body as its basic means of therapy.​

What to expect after a Tui Na session:

The pressure applied on meridians, acupuncture points and congested muscles can sometimes lead to mild pain during the session. Patients often call it a ‘nice releasing pain’.

It is also possible to feel sore in the treated area for 2-3 days after the treatment. After this initial sensation, patients should experience a considerable improvement.
