WHAT IS A TUI NA MASSAGE?
A Tui Na massage is a mind-body therapy. For those who suffer from specific body pains, it will alleviate that pain. When we have blockages, we feel pain, a Tui Na massage helps unblock these areas and promote the flow into the whole body. For those who are healthy, it enhances the energy in the body and sustains balance within the body. It calms the mind and opens the body to healing. A Tui Na massage is used for specific treatments and for sustaining balance.

DOES A TUI NA MASSAGE HURT?
Sometimes, but it also feels good. When there is a blockage, there is pain. It’s like removing a stone from an elastic tube, sometimes when the tube is too stiff, it’s harder to remove, moving the stone might be painful, but when released, it feels good. Similarly, while removing it, the tube also needs time to heal, to regenerate its strength. That is why sometimes, after treatment, you might feel a bit of pain, but in time, the body will heal itself.
