Tui Na Massage

Tui-Na is a structural form of bodywork that is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine. Benefits include:

  • Pain Relief
  • Increased Range of Motion
  • Deep Sense of Feeling Grounded

    Moving Qi

    Your body is a multi-layered system of energy. A pain-free body requires free range of motion and the free flow of qi (“chee”) through all these levels.

    When the qi is unblocked, pain reduces and eventually disappears.

    Traditional Chinese medicine is holistic, viewing the body, mind, and spirit as one system.

    We work on these levels simultaneously, exposing the root cause of the problem, and creating the possibility of long term healing.

    To address the whole, Tui Na is combined with subtle energy work to calm the mind, soothe the nervous system and rejuvenate the body.

    Not A Typical Massage

    Tui Na is generally performed with clothes on. It is helpful to wear relatively loose clothing that is comfortable.

    Tui Na (translated as “Push-Pull”) opens the meridian system of the body to release stagnation and move qi. The result is pain relief and greater range-of-motion.

    Tui Na helps to remove scar tissue from recent and old injuries, relieves chronic pain, and energizes the entire system.

    Tui Na is a clinically effective form of bodywork that will open you up as never before.

    Relaxed & Invigorated

    In addition to the push and pull of Tui Na, I incorporate Polarity Therapy, an exquisite form of energy medicine that utilizes light bodywork and hands-on healing techniques to free up blockages and expand awareness.

    It is at once powerful and gentle, transformative and rejuvenating.
