Tuina is a massage which is unlike any other massage you have ever had before. In Chinese Medicine it isn’t even considered a massage, its not in the same category. It is so great because it works to get the Qi or energy to flow in your body. When your muscles are sore or achy, tight or tingling, it means that the energy is blocked. Tuina is a superstar for unblocking the energy and making your muscles burst out with joy.
Tuina Massage Toronto
For those that like massages to be soft and relaxing, tuina can do this for you too. It is best for people who want to go deep and release all the stagnation in their body. We all have stagnation or blockages, any pain is blockage. You may not feel it on a daily basis, but if we start to palpate or push into your body, there will be sore points, I guarantee it. Tuina works on various levels and when combined with Acupuncture, the results and even better. We work deep and thorough to get to the core reason why your muscles ( or any other tissue such as tendons or bones) are hurting.
Tuina massage is not only for pain. We can use it for the same reasons we use acupuncture, digestive, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary concerns. ( among others) We regulate the energy flow and therefore the entire body including all internal organs and tissues receive the necessary environement to perform their jobs. It all comes down to blood flow, when there is blockages in our body, the blood cannot reach all the cells to deliver glucose and other materials. It is very common for people to complain about cold hands and feet. For the cold hands nine times out of ten the patients chest, shoulders, upper arms and forearms all have very tight muscles. This tightness ensures that blood flow is hindered to the arm. Removing this tightness is necessary so that all the tissues get the proper nourishment. This nourishment is Qi. (chee)
The techniques of Tuina help move energy in the body, but in essence it is motivating the lymphatic system to help flush toxins from every cell in the body. The lympathic system is responsible for removing wastes from your cells. When it becomes backed up, so does everything else
Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist and martial art principles to bring the body to balance. The principles being balanced are the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints (known as the eight gates) to open the body’s defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in both the meridians and the muscles. The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions. Tui na is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is taught in TCM schools as part of formal training in Oriental medicine. Many East Asian martial arts schools also teach tui na to their advanced students for the treatment and management of injury and pain due to training.
