Tui Na (pronounced “twee nah”) is also part of TCM. It is a natural drug free therapy, which stimulates the body’s own ability to heal. It can benefit a wide range of muscle, nerve and joint related problems; as well as a variety of specific ailments and conditions, both acute and chronic. It is particularly effective for neck, shoulder and back pain, and for chronic inflammatory conditions, digestive complaints and many stress related conditions. It can also benefit sports injuries and rehabilitation. A range of techniques are used to release soft tissue and stimulate Qi in the meridians and specific acu-points; releasing tension and promoting the smooth flow of Qi throughout the whole body. It is an invigorating and energising treatment.
