Massage is an age old treatment for the reduction of muscular pain, stiffness and fatigue. It works by improving circulation, bringing blood and oxygen to areas of muscular tension, releasing knotted fibres and clearing lactic acid build up.
Regular massage treatments are a fabulous way to combat emotional as well as physical stress. A good treatment can restore a sense of peace and general wellbeing, allowing you to perform at you peak mental and physical capacity.
Tui Na is Chinese remedial massage. It works in a similar way to acupuncture but without the needles. Tui Na seeks to establish a harmonious flow of Qi through the meridians, allowing the body to naturally heal itself.
In a typical session, your practitioner will first take a detailed consultation, and may ask to see your tongue or feel your pulse to assist the diagnosis. The practitioner will rub, knead, roll or press areas of concern to get energy moving in both the meridians and the muscles. Depending on the individual, traction, massage, acupressure, cupping therapy or moxibustion may also be incorporated.
Many conditions may benefit from Tui Na including musculo-skeletal problems, digestive disorders, arthritic pain, migraines, anxiety and stress.
Pregnancy, along with many joys, can also bring discomforts. Pinched nerves, strained or stretched muscles and edema to name a few. Massage aims to alleviate these discomforts by increasing blood flow and reducing muscular tension.
Approaching birth, massage can help to develop mind body awareness – promoting a quick, efficient labour; while post-natal massage helps to encourage a speedy recovery.
