What is TuiNa

The term tui na (pronounced "twee naw") translates to "pinch and pull," refers to a range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapeutic massage and body work.

TuiNa is generally not used for pleasure or relaxation in the same way a massage would, but it's used as a treatment for addressing disharmony within the body. Practitioners use it to treat many of the same reasons that acupuncture might be used. 

TuiNa is often referred to as "acupressure", where practitioners use finger pressure instead of needles to stimulate the acupuncture points. It's a less invasive process than acupuncture.

TuiNa is one of the most popular Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment modalities. Our practitioner will often instruct clients to do self massage at home to help expand the benefits of your sessions together.

what is aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine that uses essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds which are aimed at improving a person's health or mood.

Inhaling essential oils stimulates the part of the brain connected to smell, sending a signal to the limbic system of the brain that controls emotions and retrieves learned memories. This causes chemicals to be released which help the person feel relaxed or calm. If the aromatherapy includes massage the effect is to further relax the person.

what is light touch massage

Light touch massage is easily customized to the needs and preferences of the client.  No massage creams or oils are used, but our practitioner incorporates aromatherapy, gentle stretching, and the sustained direct pressure to the body.  This bodywork method can be used with a client seated in a massage chair or lying on a massage table while fully clothed.

who would benefit from this treatment

Light touch massage combined with aromatherapy can increase one’s overall emotional health which makes it great for clients who want to escape a stressful day
