Richmond Hill Tui Na Massage
At Richmond Hill Acupuncture and Natural Therapy Clinic we offer an array of services designed to prevent illness and disease, promote healing and encourage a higher degree of well-being for all of our many clients. Our services include acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, weight loss consultations and Tui Na Massage. Tui Na massage is a traditional Chinese massage used to release muscle tension and increase blood flow in order to stimulate the body’s own healing processes.
When is a Tui Na Massage Indicated?
At our Richmond Hill clinic we typically administer Tui Na for a number of conditions of the musculoskeletal system and in response to a variety of injuries. It has been shown that chronic pain, sciatica, “tennis elbow” and various forms of neck, shoulder and back pain all respond well to Tui Na massage therapy. Even if you are not suffering from a specific medical condition however, Tui Na massage can be an invigorating experience which provides a feeling of enhanced well-being.
How It Works
In Traditional Chinese Medicine the body contains a dozen pairs of meridians, or pathways. There are two unpaired meridians (in the trunk and head) through which the body’s essential energy or “Qi” flow. Every aspect of the body’s function is dependent on the smooth flow of of through these meridians. It is the disturbance of the energy flow which creates imbalances that cause stiffness, pain and even illness and disease.
To deal with interrupted or blocked Oi our Richmond Hill massage practitioner, much like the Acupuncturist, identifies specific of points where pressure can be applied to restore the smooth flow of energy. While it may appear to the casual observer as if the practitioner is administering a standard spa-type massage the effects of Tui Na are in fact much more comprehensive in scope and therapeutic in nature. In some cases the beneficial effect will be experienced some distance from where this therapeutic pressure was applied.
How it Feels
Tui Na is a very vigorous form of massage therapy which involves a degree of pressure and movement for each technique. This type of traditional massage produces virtually no side effects but sometimes produces unexpected, positive secondary effects. For instance, you may come to our Richmond Hill massage clinic to receive Tui Na massage for lower back pain and discover that your constipation has also been cleared up. Other times you may seek Tui Na massage for help in recovering from a neck injury and discover afterward that feelings of confusion or stress you had been experiencing recently have also been alleviated.
