Available in our clinic in Blackrock, Tuina massage is perfect on it's own or as an accompaniment to any acupuncture
What is Tuina Massage?
Though relatively unknown in the west, in China it is regarded as one of the main branches of Chinese Medicine alongside Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. Tuina massage or Chinese Therapeutic Massage uses finger pressure, stretching and leverage, therefore stimulating the meridians and acupuncture points, resulting in a relaxing and powerfully energising massage. Physical manipulations vary from light, gentle massage to deeper and stronger in nature.
Whilst Tuina is renowned for its effectiveness in the treatment of musculo-skeletal conditions, it is also effective for internal problems such as tension headaches and migraine, anxiety and panic attacks, digestive dysfunction, circulatory problems, hormonal imbalance, stress and related conditions amongst others.
Treatment with Tuina Massage is available, either on its own, or in combination with Acupuncture or Cupping. We often recommend massage in the first half of your menstrual cycle to ovulation to promote blood flow and relaxation.
