Tui Na Massage (pronounced “Twee Nah”) is a vigorous deep tissue massage that combines the benefits of western massage with Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In recent years, it has gained increasing popularity among practitioners and clients alike, because of its ability to treat specific problems in the body whether chronic or acute, encourage overall wellness, and numerous health benefits.
What is Tui Na Massage
Literally meaning “Push and grab”, Tui Na Massage focuses on balancing the Qi, or positive force energy, in the body. Not a massage for relaxation or pleasure, it is used instead to address particular disorders or ailments caused by imbalanced energy.
Poor blood circulation and blockages in the body’s positive energy flow is caused by high mental and emotional stress, excess weight, fatigue, illness, and unhealthy lifestyles. Using TCM techniques that date back more than 2,000 years, the Tui Na massage therapy’s aim is to remove blockages in the body by placing pressure on specific acupuncture points and manipulating muscles and joints.
Tui Na Massage Techniques
The Outcall Spa Signature Tui Na Massage begins with the stimulation of acupuncture points using the hands rather than needles. Applying the principles of acupuncture, the pressure on twelve connecting points throughout the body releases and connects the Qi to harmonize the yin and yang.
The masseuse then proceeds with a combination of stretching, kneading, gentle shaking, gliding, friction, chopping, and joint movements, working throughout the entire body with the hands. These movements remove the tension in the energy channels and bring the energy to the surface, dispelling it and re-establish its flow. Tui Na massage breaks down the scar tissues, removes blood stagnation, and create a clear path for the blood and Qi to circulate around the meridian system. The massages also help with muscle relaxation, improving the blood flow and speeding up recovery and healing for affected areas of the body.
The duration of the Outcall Spa Signature Tui Na Massage session is usually 90 minutes or 120 minutes.
