Tuina Massage

What is this kind of treatment?
Tuina is a kind of energy bodywork upon which many modern complementary therapies such as Shiatsu, Acupressure, Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, and Lymphatic Draining are based. Chiropractic and Physiotherapy manipulation are also founded upon Tuina techniques.

Broken Qi (intrinsic life energy) or Qi stagnation is a factor which affects the balance of' mind, body and spirit (see Body Acupuncture for a fuller explanation). The principles of Tuina include balancing yin and yang, and draining energy channels, promoting circulation of Qi, thereby removing pathogenic factors. Tuina uses the arms, hands, fingers, elbows and knees as tools for treating diseases or conditions, and can be used to increase health and build up body immunity, acting as a disease-prevention strategy. Specific points are stimulated to improve the flow of energy between the head and the rest of the body to ensure that the brain is properly nourished, since when it is not, body functions suffer.

Tuina uses techniques and manipulations to stimulate acupuncture points or other parts of the body surface so as to correct physiological imbalances of the body. The curative effect is to disperse and soothe obstructions, enhancing blood circulation and removing stasis. Tuina has no adverse side effects.

Tuina may be applied to treat many disorders, from soft tissue injuries to many kinds of ailments such as rheumatic pain, tiredness, lack of energy and any symptoms caused by stress or emotional problems. Tuina is even used for cosmetic purposes such as weight loss and as an alternative to botox.

Zhang's education in Tuina formed part of his rigorously thorough academic, theoretical and practical medical training in China since when he has practised Tuina massage for nearly twenty years. He has excelled in treating prolapsed discs, 'frozen' shoulders, sciatica, migraines, joint problems, tendonitis, tennis/golf elbow, menstrual problems, insomnia and fatigue.

Tuina treatment may also be combined with Qigong therapy.

Reflexology is a gentle therapy in which the therapist uses thumbs and fingers to apply pressure to the client's feet and/or hands as those parts mirror the body. All organs, systems and glands can be mapped onto areas of the feet called reflex points. A reflexologist knows how to stimulate the reflex points to bring about a response in the corresponding part of the body.

  • “After 5 sessions my pain and soreness has diminished by a degree I would call about 80% and I now know more about the reasons behind my condition. More importantly, I have received valuable information about how to look after myself in regard to my lifestyle to keep feeling less and less pain and functioning well.”

  • “I’ve had irregular period for years and eventually came to see Dapeng when my periods disappeared for over 6 months.
    For two months, I had acupuncture twice per week and now my periods come precisely on the date every month! I can’t thank Dr.Zhang enough to helping me find my life back! Can’t recommend him enough!”
