Tui Na in Orlando - a complete system of medicine

Tui Na, (pronounced “twee-nah) also called Tuina, is a traditional therapeutic form of massage that has been used in China from around 2000 B.C and is thought to be the oldest system of bodywork practiced today. Tui Na, along with acupuncture and herbal medicine are the main components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As such, Tui Na can be used to treat specific areas, or it can be used to improve the overall Qi or energy flow throughout the body. Its therapeutic and preventive means are a result of various hand techniques in combination with acupuncture and other manipulation techniques.

Tui Na - safe for youngsters and elders

In ancient China, medical therapy was often classified as either "external" or "internal" treatment. Tui Na massage has been considered the external form of treatment and is thought to be a suitable form of therapy for people of all ages: from infancy to old age patients. In today’s China, many hospitals include Tui Na as a standard treatment modality with specialization for infants, adults, orthopedics, traumatology, cosmetology, rehabilitation and sports medicine. Because it is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine and because it employs the same principles, Tui Na can also be used as a complement to acupuncture treatment.

Tui Na in Orlando - restore your energy flow

To perform the treatment, a Tui Na practitioner uses his or her hands, thumbs and elbows, and through kneading, pressing, pulling, rolling, shaking and tapping, disperses the excessive Qi or stimulates and rejuvenates its sources. In addition, acupressure technique is applied to directly affect the flow of Qi at different acupressure points of the body, thus facilitating the healing process. This way, any possible energy blockages are removed and the harmony of energy circulation between meridians is restored.

Tui Na - a potent detoxifier

Rooted deeply in the philosophy of Taoism, Tui Na massage is meant to restore a harmonious energy flow in the body and detoxify it. The Tui Na treatment - including the Tui Na therapy in Orlando, isn’t focused solely on easing pain or counteracting the symptoms of an illness, but instead aims at eliminating its root cause. The Tui Na treatment is one of the most effective techniques among TCM in terms of detoxifying the body. Individual patients’ reactions to the cleansing process (elimination of toxins) vary significantly, in some instances may become abrupt and lead to:

- intensification of the symptoms lasting for several days subsequently to the initial treatment

- diarrhea

- nausea

- headache, etc.

Those are amongst most common reactions. It is therefore crucial that the treatment is performed by an experienced professional and a correct preparation precedes the treatment. The use of Chinese herbs (to find out more about Chinese Herbal Medicine visit our page about Natural Medicine Therapies) may be recommended throughout the therapy by a practitioner in order enhance and speed up the healing process.

The great advantage of Tui Na massage over other massage techniques is that it focuses on the specific problem, whether it is an acute or chronic pain associated with the joints, muscles or the skeletal system. The technique has proven to be effective in reducing pain in the neck, shoulders, hips, back, arms, thighs, legs and ankles. It is also considered to be a very effective therapy for patients suffering from arthritis, sciatica or muscle spasms. Some other benefits of this particular massage therapy include, but are not limited to: significant alleviation of stress related disorders like insomnia, headaches, constipation, disorders related to digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, and emotional problems.
