Tui Na is a traditional and holistic Chinese treatment method which combines massage, acupuncture manual therapy and pain management. The purpose of Tui Na is to restore the energy balance and well-being of the body and mind. During the Tui Na procedure the bioactive pressure points are manipulated along the meridians with stroking (tui) or pinching (na) techniques. Massage can be done in direct contact with the skin or through clothing. As a result the muscles are more relaxed, blood circulation is improved and toxins are removed from the body.
