Le massage chinois Tui Na
Updated: Feb 1
Tui Na is an energetic massage that is part of the 5 branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tui Na massage is a Chinese therapeutic massage. Tui means "to push" and Na, "to grab". These are 2 types of manipulations most commonly used during this massage. It happens that the term Anmo, meaning “to press” (an) and “to rub” (mo), is linked to the word Tui Na, because these 2 movements are also at the origin of this approach. Hence the name of the massage “Tui Na An Mo”. It is a massage that relieves and can heal.
It is based on the theory of meridians composed of channels that circulate in our body and which transport vital energy.
It differs from Western massage techniques thanks to the energy concept on which it is based (the harmonization of the QI), but also because of the multiplicity of types of manipulations rigorously classified according to their form, strength and function. These are 300 manipulations that can be performed with: fingers, palm, hand, wrist, forearm or elbow, however the knees and feet can also be used. It is a dynamic massage. Depending on the areas, an action is applied to acupuncture points in order to unblock and improve the circulation of energy. This practice removes blockages and restimulates the circulation of energies. This massage acts on different parts and functions of the body, it :
Eliminates blockages and stimulates the body's capacities by restoring a natural kick.
Promotes blood and energy circulation and helps reduce pain
Allows total relaxation while energizing the body the days following the session. Also helps fight insomnia
Can be considered as a relaxing massage.
In the office, a session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. You are lying on a table. I ask you what your problem is. Depending on your needs, I will then use some of the various techniques and then perform the massage in a more or less supported way, and more or less dynamic according to your feelings.
