TUI-NA MASSAGE & REFLEXOLOGY
A natural healing hand therapy
What is Tui-Na Massage therapy?
Tui-na is Traditional Chinese massage that has been used in China for 2,000 years. Tui-Na uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic principle.
Tui-Na uses this principle to treat patients through the application of massage and manipulation techniques by using the arms, hands, fingers, elbows and knees as tools to stimulate acupuncture points or other parts of the body surface so as to correct physiological imbalances of the body, disperse and smooth obstructions in the body and achieve curative effect for treating diseases and illnesses.
It is also used to protect health and build up the body’s immunity, so that disease can be stopped in its early stages. In this way Tui-Nai acts as a preventative measure, without any side effects.
Tui-na is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which also encompasses acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition and exercise (Qi-gong) to treat the whole body, mind and spirit.
Tui Na can apply to the clothed body or directly apply on the skin. Patients sit on a chair or lie on a couch. Be prepared to answer some questions about your state of health before having a Tui Na treatment.

"I was suffered from depression, on anti-depressants, adjusting to an under-active thyroid, all whilst unsuccessfully trying for a baby for two full years. I contacted Qiong Di and five months later I was pregnant with a beautiful little baby girl. Qiong Di not only helped us to get pregnant, but she also brought me a stronger sense of health and well-being in general. Thank you, thank you Qiong Di, and I wish all the best to your wonderful practice!"
"As I got older, I also found it more difficult each time to keep to the regimen of a diet. I decided that I needed to try something different, so I turned to acupuncture. Since then, I have lost nearly 35 pounds and I feel absolutely great! The weight loss was over 3 months during which time I did not experience that light-headed feeling or even the dreaded hunger pangs! The inches just melted away from my waist and I have gone from a size 40+ inch waist to a 34. This is all due to Qiong Di’s effective weight loss programme."
"I first noticed I had TMJ when I was 20 years old in 1997, and over the years the condition got worse causing me to have great pain and discomfort in my jaw muscles. I tried everything including a specially made TML gum shield, osteopath treatments, many kinds of pain killers, and even practiced special jaw exercises. Then, after just one session with Qiong Di I knew that I had found the solution to my problem. Since this time I have been living pain free! So I would highly recommend the TUNG-CHI TCH Centre to anyone who is looking for an alternative treatment."
