So what is Tui Na?
Tui Na, a distinguished medical Chinese manual therapy, represents one of the fourth branches of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
Emphasizing various manipulations applied to acupoints and meridians, Tui Na integrates special limb stretching movements to prevent and treat a spectrum of diseases. By promoting the flow of blood and increasing circulation, it effectively decreases pain, spasms, and adhesions.
This therapeutic approach seeks to balance organs, smooth the joints, ligaments, and tendons, transcending the boundaries of a typical massage. Its efficacy extends beyond the muscles, bones, and joints, working with the body on a deeper energetic level.
It’s offers a more comprehensive approach compared to traditional rehabilitation methods, owing to its foundation in TCVM and its tailored, individualized treatment plans. The therapy harnesses the power of Han’s six Tui Na manipulation system, integrating a holistic blend of specialized techniques for optimal healing and restoration.
