Tui Na With Qi Sense

Tui Na is a an invigorating and deep therapeutic massage based on Chinese Medicine Theory.

The intention of Tui Na is to restore balance through unblocking the channels that have been blocked by tension and poor movement mechanics and habits. We use a variety of techniques to stimulate your body's Acupuncture points and energy channels to get your Qi flowing smoothly and address specific internal illnesses as well as physical problems.

You don't need to remove clothing in traditional Tui Na massage (other than coats, shoes and jewellery) as the massage is generally done with you covered with a cotton sheet or directly over your clothing. 

The therapy is also suitable at a young age as it is the first choice of treatment for infants and children in China.

Tui Na massage can be done on it's own as a therapy or combined with Traditional Acupuncture to enhance the effects of both.
