Tui Na is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy that is highly effective for the release of muscle tension. Tui Na therapeutic massages utilise hard pressure to reach deep muscle tissues, which is similar to sports massages. Our Tui Na therapists may press, tap, and knead with palms, fingertips, knuckles to
- relax muscles
- relieve muscle spasm
- restore misplaced muscles to their original locations
- promote Qi and blood circulation
- and release tight muscle knots
All these will effectively relieve any soreness and tension to the muscles, thus improving pain and mobility. If you suffer from neck and shoulder pain with tension headaches, it should help to relieve these too.
Each Tui Na session normally lasts for about 60 minutes, with about 30 to 40 minutes dedicated to the Neck, Back and Shoulders. The remaining time will be used to massage the limbs and head to ensure a well-balanced massage therapy session. After a Tui Na treatment session, it is normal to experience soreness, swelling and skin redness. These symptoms will slowly dissipate over the next few days.
