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.

Update - had a hot stone massage with Fi which I was a little apprehensive about as I hadn’t had one before.. and oh my goddd I would never get anything else now!! Fi was communicative and always made sure the stones were the right temperature and that I was comfortable. Amazing experience. Next time I want an Indian head massage. 😍
