If you’ve never tried a Tui Na massage, now is the time! At Rainwater Spa, the old technique of Tui Na massage is a special massage modality that isn’t offered at all spas.
A Tui Na massage feels like a combination of acupressure and Shiatsu massage. The compression along energy channels within the body allows our energy flow to be calm and balanced. Like Shiatsu massage, Tui Na uses many similar techniques to focus on joint lubrication and mobility.
Tui Na originated as an Asian form of bodywork close to 1700 BC and it is still viewed as a popular healing technique with the Chinese population.
In Western culture, Tui Na massage looks more like a traditional Swedish massage. Both massage modalities use gliding hand strokes, kneading and percussion techniques, as well as friction and vibration.
Although Tui Na may have some similar techniques as Swedish massage, Tui Na is considered a more therapeutic massage experience than a traditional relaxation massage.
Tui Na massage has the advantage of pinpointing specific problem areas especially chronic pain and joint issues. Many health problems like arthritis, muscle spasms, and neck pain were significantly improved with Tui Na massage sessions.
Tui Na massage does wonders on the muscles and joints within our body but Tui Na also works well to improve energy levels and internal health. When your body is in balance and energy levels are in sync with one another, your body will do much better with correcting and preventing future health issues from arising.
