How does Tui na differ from other massage styles?
Tui na is a very dynamic and energising massage to receive. It can also be used to calm the central nervous system with a soothing approach, this will ultimately depend on what energetic shift is required.
It will leave your physical body feeling invigorated whilst simultaneously creating a sense of peace, calmness of spirit and clarity of mind. Tui na massage utilises diagnostic tools that include tongue and pulse readings which help identify disharmonic patterns.
A treatment plan is created for you based on Taoist principles with the aim of resolving symptoms through the balancing the energy field on all levels of your existence.
How is Tui na massage performed?
Tui na massage uses a variety of hand and forearm techniques that include rolling, pushing, holding, pulling, grasping and tapping. Some supplemental rotations and passive manipulations which assist joint mobility can also be performed. All of the techniques help release pathogens and move blood stagnation.
The massage techniques start on a superficial level and then gradually migrate into the deeper layers before returning once again to the surface. I complete an energetic assessment and make any necessary adjustments intuitively during the session. This can include hands-off chi transfer and frequency work.
What does Tui na massage do?
Tui na specialises in removing physical restrictions that cause postural and spinal misalignments. It can focus directly on joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, as well as move blood and chi.
It does this by working with the fascia (connective tissue) whilst also following meridian pathways and activating acupoints that help enhance the movement of chi.
This holistic approach is highly important as pain can often be caused by a blockage elsewhere in the body. Once the blockages are released, the chi starts to flow and the body’s innate intelligence will automatically re-balance you. Improving your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Is Tui na massage painful to receive?
Tui na massage is not a painful massage treatment. Unlike some sports massages that tend to use continuous pressure on tight muscles, Tui na focuses instead on breaking down tissue restrictions gradually using a vigorous rolling technique, that stays in constant contact with the body.
However, if your body is is restricted and requires deep tissue work, you may feel tender the following day, similar to a post workout. This is due to the pushing out of old blood and toxins that cause stagnation in the body.
Tui na massage techniques are intended to gradually release the tissue whilst also relaxing the nervous system, making it an enjoyable massage experience to receive.
What does Tui na mean and where does it originate?
Tui na (pronounced twee-nah) is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its translation means to push and grasp. It is often used in conjunction with other TCM treatments such as acupuncture, herbalism, Qigong and nutrition.
It is often referred to as ‘acupuncture without needles’ making it ideal for anyone to receive, especially those with a phobia of needles.
Can Tui na help with Medical Conditions?
Tui na specialises in treating health related issues and physical injuries making it a unique form of massage because it uses a treatment protocol. It is also commonly given as a monthly health maintenance to keep the body in good shape by stimulating blood and chi flow.
There is a saying which states ‘prevention is better than cure’ this sums up why having regular Tui na sessions is an investment in your health and well-being.

Do I need to remove my clothing?
No, because unlike other massage modalities Tui na is unique in that it works with friction through the clothes. It is often applied using a cotton sheet enabling the patient to feel a sense of relaxed modesty whilst maintaining a feeling of warmth and comfort throughout the whole session.
At times it might be necessary to apply healing ointments to localised areas, so clothing may need to be adjusted or removed.
What other benefits will I receive?
I also provide nutritional advice based on the five elements, deep breathing techniques, exercises and stretches used as part of my martial arts and Qigong practice and spiritual guidance.
I can also tune into your energy field and observe and receive information from the Quantum overlay and make any necessary energetic corrections. Although the latter is recommended by booking a separate Quantum Healing Session.
Why is it important to receive regular Tui na sessions?
The Western lifestyle is in a constant state of over-stimulation and our neural pathways continuously receive communications that need us to deal with the daily pressures of work, family, homes, finances and hobbies.
We also tend to do a lot of mental & emotional processing which can cause prolonged states of stress and become quite a drain on our energy levels if not resolved.
When we experience mental and emotional stress, our tissues have a tendency to react by becoming stuck and rigid. This restricts the flow of chi and can be a huge factor in causing blockages and stagnation.
The need to maintain a balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system is vital for our state of health and well-being.
The gentle yet vigorous Tui na techniques stimulate the peripheral nerves under the skin, thereby having a positive effect on the central nervous system.
This relieves stress and tension often stored within the cellular memories of our body tissues, encouraging them to dissipate, leaving the body more malleable even after just one session.
This allows the mind to relax and has a re-energising effect on the body as well as a calming effect on the spirit.
