What is Tui Na?
There are an array of techniques used, such as kneading, chopping, hacking, perpendicular pressure and rolling fist which the clinician will use to remove tension/spasm in the muscles and blockages of “Chi” in the channels. Tui Na embraces two aspects: firstly, just like modern western massages, it works the muscles helping them to relax, removing stagnation and allowing the blood to flow more freely throughout the area giving the muscles the optimum chance of repairing itself. Secondly, because of its Chinese origins, it works with restoring the balance of “Chi”. Tui Na presses on certain acupressure points in the body’s meridian system to stimulate the body’s own healing process.
You have all most likely heard Dr. Phoebe refer to “Chi” during your treatment. The theory of “Chi” states that it is a universal life force energy which all living forms have. When one’s “Chi “is strong, well balanced and flowing freely throughout the body, the individual is healthy, free from illnesses and diseases.
Tui Na, along with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, are the main components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tui Na can be used as a complement to acupuncture treatment and as an integrative treatment alongside modern medicine, alternative medicine, rehabilitation and is effective in the treatment of muscles, tendons and ligaments and a variety of other ailments.
Dr. Phoebe is honoured that visiting Professor Li Caizhen from the Ministry of Health in Beijing Haidian District has chosen AcuSpa as her training and development platform to promote her unique brand of Tui Na technique.
Professor Li is a well respected figure in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in her motherland and her application of Tui Na has gained national recognition. She also has several clinics behind her name including clinical teaching institutions.
Professor Li has a background in both modern and traditional medicine with qualifications in pathology, anatomy and orthopaedics. She draws upon the principals of TCM in particular, acupuncture and cupping to provide a very unique combination of Tui Na techniques.
AcuSpa was so pleased to learn that each and every one of its patients voiced positive results immediately after treatment.
Dr. Phoebe is very thankful to Professor Li for her guidance and knowledge sharing. She also thanks her clinical team for tirelessly supporting her and the clinic. Most importantly, Dr. Phoebe thanks her patients for believing in the gift of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
