Tui-Na Massage & Reflexology

A natural healing hand therapy.


Tui-na is Traditional Chinese massage that has been used in China for 2,000 years. Tui-Na uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic principle. Tui-Na uses this principle to treat patients through the application of massage and manipulation techniques by using the arms, hands, fingers, elbows and knees as tools to stimulate acupuncture points or other parts of the body surface so as to correct physiological imbalances of the body, disperse and smooth obstructions in the body and achieve curative effect for treating diseases and illnesses. It is also used to protect health and build up the body’s immunity, so that disease can be stopped in its early stages. In this way Tui-Nai acts as a preventative measure, without any side effects.

Tui-na is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which also encompasses acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and exercise (Qi-gong) to treat the whole body, mind and spirit.

Tui Na can apply to the clothed body or directly apply on the skin. Patients sit on a chair or lie on a couch. Be prepared to answer some questions about your state of health before having a Tui Na treatment.

Tui-Na Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy is a beautiful and exciting time in a woman’s life, but sometimes this transformation can cause discomfort, stress, and depletion of a woman’s body and energy. As the baby grows it can begin to demand more energy (Qi) and blood than the mother can produce. When this condition occurs, various symptoms can arise, such as lower back strain, swelling or water retention, and digestive upset.

Through massage, the muscles can be relaxed to allow the blood to move more freely and efficiently, which leads to better circulation, decreased swelling, and increased energy. Focus on the immune system through the lymph can also help to insure the health of the mother throughout gestation. The following pregnancy related issues can be treated:

  • Morning sickness
  • Pregnant back, knee and ankle pain
  • Pregnant carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Relieve stress & insomnia
  • Pre-labour relaxation and induce Labour for mature pregnancy
