Tui Na (Chinese: 推拿, pinyin: tuīná) or acupressure is a form of therapy in which manual techniques are used to manipulate the body’s soft tissue to promote healing, improved circulation, and pain relief.
How does Bodywork Therapy work?
The body comprises of channels that link the muscles, sinews, organs, nerves and its vasculature. These channels serve to facilitate the circulation of blood, nutrients, functional hormones, and other necessary biomolecules, all of which Chinese Medicine practitioners call "Qi". When doing bodywork, we apply manual pressure to the soft tissue, which facilitates circulation, warmth and movement within the channels and flesh. This creates a healing response that can reduce inflammation, calm the neural pain signals, and relax muscles and sinews.
