TUINA (CHINESE MASSAGE)
Tuina (pronounced twee-nah) is the Chinese term for “to push and to pull”. It uses the principles of Chinese Medicine to treat mainly muscular skeletal conditions.
The techniques differ from more conventional massage as it focus on the meridians and points used in Chinese Medicine.
This technique is a good alternative to acupuncture if an individual is opposed to acupuncture needles.
HOT STONES MASSAGE
During a hot stones massage, the heat penetrates the muscles creating deep relaxation and helps to release stress and tension.
Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes relieve and prevent injuries through the management, manipulation and maintenance of soft tissues; but it’s not just sporting types who can benefit from the many physical, physiological and psychological benefits that regular massage can bring. Stress, anxiety and regular overuse of muscle groups may all be alleviated by sports massage. Day to day problems, which many experience such as back and neck pain, repetitive strain injuries, sprains and tension, may all benefit from regular massage.
Regular sports massage can:
Relieve muscle tension and reduce muscle spasms, increasing mobility
Improve flexibility of muscles
Improve quality of scar tissue after injury and reduce swelling
Increase supply of oxygen and nutrients to tissues through increased blood circulation, promoting recovery and help preventing overuse
Help in the removal of metabolic waste products as lymph flow is increased
Relieve anxiety, stress and tension through neurological feedback
Reduce pain by stimulating receptors in the skins surface
