Acupuressure & Tuina Therapy

Tuina and Acupressure can help

Tui Na is a Traditional Chinese Medicine massage technique used on acupuncture points and painful areas of the body.  It helps provide relief through rhythmic pressure along acupuncture meridians, using techniques such as gliding, kneading, percussion, friction, pulling, rotation, rocking, vibration and shaking.  The aim is to encourage a more harmonious flow of Qi through the meridian systems thereby stimulating the body to naturally heal itself.  

Cautions and Contraindications
Tuina Therapy
  • Shoulder and back pain
  • Stiff muscles
  • Weight loss and cellulite treatments
  • Sports, work related and repetitive injuries 

  • Fractures, phlebitis (inflammation of a vein, often in the legs)
  • Open wounds and lesions.

Tui Na and acupressure can both be combined with Acupuncture treatment or as a stand-alone treatment.

Acupressure is the stimulation of acupuncture points using hands & fingers instead of needles to relieve local obstructions and help clear blockages in the meridians.
