Meridian Tuina Massage for Chronic Pain

Tuina is a traditional Chinese medical modality that treats chronic diseases. It is most commonly used for treating musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain.

Tuina is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that focuses on the feet and hands to manipulate the body’s qi (vital energy) for healing. Tuina practitioners believe that qi flows through pathways in the body called meridians. These meridians are connected to bodily organs and are said to be able to influence their function.

The word "tuina" comes from the Chinese words meaning "push" or "to rub". Tuina utilizes slow, sustained pushing or pulling movements of hands, fingers, elbows and knees to manipulate joints and muscles in order to relieve pain in the body’s muscles and joints. Tuina can relieve pain by promoting the local and systemic circulation of qi and blood by removing pathogenic factors. The a-shi point in traditional Chinese medicine is a reaction point for disease on the skin. Manipulation at an a-shi point can remove the local stasis of qi and blood and promote their circulation.

Meridian Tuina Massage for Healthy Living

Tuina massage is one of the oldest forms of healing massages and is still popular today. Tuina means “push” and “press” in Mandarin, which are the basic techniques used during a tuina massage session. During a session, the therapist will apply pressure to specific points on your body with their hands or elbows in order to stimulate blood flow, relieve tension, and promote overall health.

Some people use tuina as an alternative to Western medicine for treating chronic pain conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia because it does not have side effects like medication does.

How Would I Feel During Treatment?

Tuina massage is a form of traditional Chinese medicine. It uses pressure and massage to stimulate the flow of qi and blood in the body. For a typical session, your practitioner will start by using their hands, elbows, and forearms to apply deep and gentle pressure all over your body. This treatment can be used to address pain from injuries, chronic conditions, or just as a way to relax and enjoy the benefits of Tuina (tui na) massage.
