Acupuncture & Tui Na Chinese Massage
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a system of healing based on over 2,500 years of development and refinement in the Far East. According to traditional Chinese philosophy, our health is dependent on the body’s motivating energy – known as qi – moving in a smooth and balanced way through a series of meridians (channels) beneath the skin. The flow of qi can be disturbed by many physical, mental and emotional factors.
Clinical research continues to demonstrate the effectiveness of traditional acupuncture in treating a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture is as much about the maintenance of health as the management of disease.
What is Tui Na Chinese Medical Massage?
Tui Na is one of four main branches of Chinese medicine; its sister therapies are acupuncture, herbal medicine and Qi Gong health exercise.
Tui na treatment can be very dynamic and moving or very subtle and gentle depending on the nature of the treatment to be given. The techniques are used to stimulate the points and channels of the acupuncture channels/ meridians, the soft tissues, sinews and organs.
Tui na is often used as an alternative to acupuncture for people who are fearful of needles.
