Tuina Medical and Sports Treatment

This treatment focuses specifically on the main complaint or injury, if you suffer from pain, impaired range of movement or Pre and post sports event. It helps alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity.

By using Tuina while training for your events, it enables you to train harder and longer. Many athletes fail on the day of competition with their bodies already fatigued and excess lactic acid still in the system from over strengthening not allowing for repair. Touch Tuina keeps the muscles and fascia tissue warm, supple, elastic and strong.

Minor injuries and lesions can occur due to overexertion and/or overuse, Tuina can break them down quickly and effectively. It can help prevent those niggling injuries that often hinder performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, avid gym goer, once a week jogger, busy parent or computer office worker………..

The key element of this treatment is to improve, posture and alignment, injuries happen when these are out of balance.

A Tuina practitioner uses techniques such as as acupressure, myofascial release, deep tissue work, stretching and joint mobilisation and can stimulate many points during a single treatment, dredge many channels/meridians similar to Acupuncture but without needles. Tuina also has the ability to work on the local muscle near the trauma, and break down adhesions and scar tissue at the local level to increase the flow of blood, nutrients and oxygen (Qi/chi) to carry away damaged tissue.

The practitioner will work on specific zones of your body to create balance maybe rather than always working the whole body.
