ABOUT AN MO TUI NA
REMEDIAL CHINESE MASSAGE THERAPY
An Mo Tui Na is a form of manipulative therapy, originating in China over 2000 years ago, In China, Tui Na practitioners treat conditions that, in the West, are treated by osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists or with drugs. It is the only form of massage that has a medical application and is used extensively in Chinese hospitals and clinics. It has become China's front line of healthcare, whereas in the West many problems tend to get treated only at a chronic stage.
A Tui Na practitioner utilises his or her knowledge of the meridian systems in conjunction with various manual techniques and oriental therapies, to support a balanced and harmonious flow of Qi throughout the body. Each acupressure pattern activates a specific function of the meridian channels and their corresponding muscle groups and internal organs. Like the ripple effect of a pebble thrown in the water, the effect of Tui Na manipulations “ripple” to different layers of body tissues, working on the musculoskeletal, circulatory and nervous system.
Tui Na works on healing the body at a deeper level than conscious thought. Many of our problems are stored on an unconscious level causing problems in our day-to-day life. Tui Na works to connect us with life-force energy and renew our connection to our own power, allowing us to release old patterns that may have slowed us down.
Tui Na is frequently used in conjunction with Medical Qigong, Cupping and Moxabustion to resolve blockages, stagnations or disharmonious patterns of life-force energy which have been the cause of disease, thus restoring the client to a state of well-being.oday it has become very advanced in its treatment for many diseases therefore Tui Na can and should also be used as a preventative form of treatment to maintain health and prevent accumulation of stress, disease and injury.
