Tui-na is a form of Chinese Massage, an extension of Chinese Medicine (using the theory of Chinese medicine) some would say massage is the oldest form of medicine.
Tui-na is a highly advanced system of massage which can be used to treat both physical and internal problems. The techniques are often gentle, but the effects deep and long lasting.
In a typical session, the client, wearing loose clothing and no shoes, lies on a massage table. The practitioner examines the specific problems of the client and begins to apply a specific treatment protocol. The major focus of application is upon specific pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians, and muscles and joints. Sessions last from 30 to 45 minutes. Depending on the specific problems of the client, they may return for additional treatments. The client usually feels relaxed and energized by the treatment.
