Acupressure & Tui na – a unique traditional Chinese bodywork therapy

Tui na medical massage is a system of bodywork using acupressure techniques that has been used in China for many hundreds of years. It still is used and has an important role in modern hospitals and clinics in China for the treatment of many pain conditions that might be treated by a physiotherapist or osteopath/chiropractor in the UK.

In Japan, shiatsu developed from Tui na and Chinese Medicine theory, whilst acupressure and reflexology are also derivatives of traditional Chinese bodywork therapy.

Tui na uses many distinctive techniques that you wont find in other massage therapies. There is generally a more consistent and stronger pressure applied than with western techniques. Often a Tui na treatment ends with stretches, gentle traction or cupping therapy.


Benefits from tui na acupressure massage

Tui na is beneficial both to our bodies and injured tissues, but also to our minds. You will be guided to a more relaxed state through treatment. The tensions that build up in our bodies contribute to the discomfort, stress and tiredness that we experience in our daily lives. Skilfully drawing the patients’ attention to (and enabling the relaxation of) physical tension will also have a relaxing effect on our minds. This process can lead to the alleviation of many stress-based conditions such as tension headaches, IBS, or anxiety and insomnia.

“I have had a brilliant Christmas and (usually for me) SAD season, whatever you did, I felt upbeat, fought off flu’s, and have had the best Christmas ever, with positive vibes and all good things, and I think I have to thank you, for what you did. Will see you late January for a booster!”

Vena Ramphal, London

I really liked how we started with the work on nutrition and my relationship with food.  This physical work acted as a safety net for the energetic emotional shifts that the breath and body work brought on. They were quite full on!

Alex Brown, London

“The best way I can describe what Stefan does is to say that there are times when I have gone to see him feeling like I'm "broken" due to stress, over work, the death of my brother and other life experiences that have been hard to deal with. And in a simple sentence I leave feeling "fixed". Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative“
