Tui Na massage

Tui Na (pronounced “twee-naah”) is a style of deep tissue massage from China. It is done with your clothes on and no oil is used which means it is more suitable for certain people than the more common style of deep tissue massage.

Information about Tui Na massage

What is a Tui Na massage?

Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese Daoist principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of traditional Chinese medicine into balance. The term tui na, which literally translates as “pinch and pull” helps to get rid of blockages or imbalances that are believed to lead to pain and illness.

How is a Tui Na massage performed?

Tui Na massage can be done as a stronger deep-tissue massage or a more gentle, energetic treatment. Some techniques are more yin, which is more gentle, passive, and meditative. The yang approach is more active, dynamic, and physical, creating more intense sensations by stimulating deep blockages and knots. Tui Na tends to be quite invigorating whilst also being relaxing. Unlike most other massages, Tui Na treatments are performed without requiring you to remove any clothing.

I was so relaxed and comfortable in Fi’s company - she clearly knows exactly what she’s doing. Fi went above and beyond to explain different types of massage and asked how much pressure I liked.I never knew how much I needed a massageand I feel so much better and relieved of tension.The space is absolutely beautiful as well, so cosy and gorgeous.

Benefits of Tui Na massage

Improved blood circulation

Tui Na massage promotes blood circulation which means many people feel more energetic after a massage.

Reduces chronic pain

The benefits of Tui Na extend to alleviating chronic pain, especially when combined with core stability exercises.

Reduces stress

A Tui Na massage can help to reduce levels of the stress hormone noradrenaline as well as cortisol, an indicator of stress.

Lift your mood

Regular Tui Na massages can offer a natural aid to anxiety and alleviating depression symptoms.

Improved healing

This may tie in with stress reduction but people who are more relaxed, generally, get less sick less often than those who don't.

Improved sleep

A Tui Na massage can help you mentally and physically unwind, the perfect starting point for a great nights sleep.

What issues could Tui Na massage help address?

The main benefit of Tui Na massage is that it focuses on the specific problem, whether it is an acute or a chronic pain associated with the joints, muscles, nervous or skeletal system.

Pain relief

Tui Na can help to alleviate pain such as chronic neck pain, lower back pain, osteoarthritis and carpal tunnel. It is often used for conditions and injuries related to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

Anxiety, depression and low moods

Booking in for a Tui Na massage can help you to relax, alleviate tension and help to improve your mood - it's also a bit of time for yourself where you can shut the stress of daily life out and bask in some much needed me-time.

Ease tight muscles and knots

One of the benefits of a Tui Na massage is the manipulation and variation of pressure can assist in increasing blood flow to muscles, improving circulation and encouraging natural healing which will help to ease tightness.

Stress related disorders

Other benefits of this massage therapy include alleviation of the stress related disorders like insomnia, constipation, headaches and other disorders related to digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.

Alternative therapies you might like to consider

If you are looking for an alternative to a Tui Na massage then we do have other styles of massage therapies on offer.
A Swedish massage is a full body massage and is a great way to let go of stress and to unwind. With this can then also come the added benefit of helping you sleep better, among many other possible benefits.
A deep tissue massage therapy session works on the muscles and connective tissue at a deeper level and can assist in bringing relief to muscle soreness as well as speed up recovery for aches, pains and injuries.
