Tui Na is a traditional Chinese therapeutic massage used to treat chronic pain caused by musculo-skeletal disorders and injuries. This can include sciatica problems, repetitive strain injuries, tennis elbow, neck, shoulder and back pain and immobility. Here are just a few reasons to get a Tui Na massage.


Tui Na is more focused than other massage techniques like Swedish massage and other Western approaches. It pinpoints certain ailments such as joint displacement, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, rheumatism, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, respiratory ailments and other internal disorders.

Promotes Balance

Tui Na uses acupressure to balance the body and get rid of blockages in energy pathways. Tui Na is similar to acupuncture in that it focuses on specific points on the body, as well as certain muscles and joints. Tui Na can be a fantastic way to increase vital energy flow and promote mental and physical wellbeing.


This massage can improve blood circulation, regulate nerves and increase a person’s range of motion. Tui Na can be a great choice for treating muscles, tendons and ligaments. It has been proven as a popular complementary treatment alongside hospital tehabilitation.

Biological Adjustments

Tui Na has been known to correct both interior and exterior anatomical abnormalities. This is done by changing the energy levels of the biological system and tweaking the body’s bio information.

Trauma Therapy

Sometimes Tui Na is known as “trauma therapy.” This is because it helps to break down scar tissue, relaxes muscles and can greatly increase blood flow. Encouraging a better blood flow in the body can work wonders in speeding up the healing process, as muscles and tendons are fed essential nutrients and they’ll repair a lot more quickly.

Versatile Treatment

Much like acupuncture, Tui Na can relieve, and even treat, several different ailments. This includes frozen shoulders, achey muscles, diarrhoea, constipation and fatigue. It doesn’t just stop at physical complaints! Tui Na can help ease symptoms of emotional problems such as low attention span/concentration, insomnia, tension headaches and even long-term stress/
