Tui na (pronounced twee-nah) massage originated in ancient China and is one of the oldest systems of bodywork. A typical session of tui na massage may vary from thirty minutes to an hour. Clients remain fully clothed, wearing loose clothing. Tuina methods can include soft tissue massage, manipulation, acupressure in conjunction with herbal compresses, ointments, liniments and heat. The best part of the therapy is that it relaxes as well as energizes the person. The main benefit of tui na massage is that it focuses on the specific problem, whether it is an acute or a chronic pain associated with the joints, muscles, or a skeletal system.
