Chinese Massage Therapists methods include the use of hand techniques to massage the soft tissue (muscles and tendons) of the body. Also acupressure techniques are used to directly affect the flow of Qi and manipulation techniques to realign the muscles and bonesand ligaments. External herbal poultices, compresses, liniments, and salves may also be used to enhance the other therapeutic methods. Many of the techniques used in this massage resemble that of a western massage like gliding, kneading, vibration, tapping, friction, pulling, rolling, pressing and shaking. In Tui Na (Chinese Technique) massage, the muscles and tendons are massaged with the help of hands, and an acupressure technique is applied to directly affect the flow of Qi at different acupressure points of the body, thus facilitating the healing process. It removes the blockages and keeps the energy moving through the meridians as well as the muscles. Tui Na Chinese Massage is well suited for the treatment of specific muscle and bone disorders and chronic stress-related disorders of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems. Tui Na Chinese Massage is an Oriental Bodywork Therapy that has been used in China for over 2,000 years. Tui Na uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic orientation. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques Tui Na seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system of channels and collaterals, allowing the body to naturally heal itself. Tui Na Chinese Massage is available at Ding Hao Chinese Wellness Center.
