Tui Na
Tui na is a 2000 year old, hands-on body treatment that uses a cross of Chinese taoist and martial arts principles, in an effort to harmonize mind and body, to remove blockages along the meridians of the body and stimulate the flow of energy (qi) and blood to promote healing from within, and bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into balance.

What conditions can Tui Na Treat?
Tui Na is known to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, such as low back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, headache, insomnia, gastric pain, dysmenorrhea and other commonly encountered diseases, by stimulating acupressure points and regulating functions of the internal organs.

Who can benefit from Tui Na
Tui Na is suitable for people of all ages, including children. Apart from treating conditions, it is also an excellent means of relaxing the body, and strengthening the body’s immune system.
