What is Tui Na?
Tui Na is a traditional Chinese form of massage that incorporates the principles of acupressure for targeting areas of pain or for relieving specific ailments. Blue Pearl Institute integrates Tui Na into many treatments as an accessory method to acupuncture.
Tui na is effective for relieving joint pain, muscle tightness, bursitis, headaches, PMS, asthma, anxiety and many more common complaints.
Tui Na incorporates both common massage techniques and specialized techniques. Its main objective is moving qi. So while massage therapists are thinking in terms of muscle groups, fascia and ligaments the Tui na practioner is thinking in terms of acupuncture points, meridians, and qi flow.
Tui Na in conjunction with Gua Sha and/or Fire Cupping and essential oils linaments make an excellent neck release protocol (add up to six needles for the brave.)
