Tui Na is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It can be best described as a combination between massage and acupressure. Massage is the manipulation of bodily tissues, while acupressure works with the energetics of the body. By combining these two powerful yet gentle forms of bodywork humans and animals alike receive the physical and emotional health benefits which include:
- Builds the immune system
- Releases endorphins necessary to relieve pain
- Strengthens muscles, tendons, joints, and bones
- Releases natural cortisone to reduce swelling and inflammation
- Resolves injuries more readily by increasing blood circulation and removing toxins
- Balances the flow of energy and blood to optimize nourishment of internal organs
- and bodily tissues.
