Experience a TuiNa Massage in Naples Florida Today!
If you are thinking about getting massage in Naples, you might want to consider trying TuiNa. TuiNa is the form of Asian bodywork therapy that most closely resembles conventional western massage. Many of the techniques are similar between the two styles, the big difference is the intent. The intention of a Swedish massage is relaxation and the intention of TuiNa is to heal an area of imbalance in the body. Tui means “to push” and na means “to pluck” and dates back to 1700 BC. TuiNa is usually a bit more aggressive and works on a deep muscular level as well as the energetic level of the body. TuiNa uses the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to balance the energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), of the body in order to relieve pain and reverse illness.
TuiNa focuses on the problem areas
One of the advantages of TuiNa is the ability to focus on specific problem areas, especially those areas of chronic pain associated with the muscles, joints, and bones. In addition to treating arthritis, muscle spasms, neck and shoulder pain, back pain, etc, it also helps to balance the body and relieve issues such as digestive disorders, headaches, stress and tension, sleep and mood disorders.
TuiNa works on the energetic level to regain the free flow of energy through the meridians. Where there is pain, there is stagnation of energy. Performing TuiNa on the meridians that have stagnated, or stuck, energy, re-establishes the free flow of Qi and results in pain relief.
TuiNa is very relaxing, yet energizing. After a session of TuiNa, you will feel looser, calmer, more centered, and very relaxed. For this reason, conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia and headaches can also be improved. When in balance, you feel more able to tackle the stresses of the day in a much calmer manner. Everyone can benefit from TuiNa. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, children are usually treated with TuiNa and adults with a combination of TuiNa and acupuncture. Chinese herbal medicine might be used in both cases.
TuiNa prevents health issues
TuiNa is also a great treatment to prevent health issues, not just to treat them. Good health is maintained if the body’s energy stays free flowing and in balance. Regular TuiNa treatments, say one or two times per month, goes a long way in reducing stress and maintaining good physical, mental and emotional health and well-being.
In China, TuiNa practitioners most closely resemble chiropractors, osteopaths, and physical therapists. In the United States, however, TuiNa practitioners most closely resemble massage therapists. That is because most TuiNa practitioners in the US do not perform the “bone-setting” portion of TuiNa that is currently practiced in China.
You should not use TuiNa as a treatment method if you have phlebitis (vein inflammation), blood clots, fractures, infectious conditions, open wounds, or lesions. Be sure to inform your practitioner if you have any of these conditions.
