Cupping and Tui Na (Therapeutic Massage)
Tui and Na, mean “push” and “grasp.” Tui Na massage along acupuncture points and meridians moves “stuck” qi (energy) and blood that may be causing pain or imbalance. The practitioner uses gentle strokes along with deeper penetration of tight muscles to help alleviate pain. This modality also includes gentle mobilization of limbs. In cupping therapy, plastic or warmed glass suction cups are placed on the skin, creating a vacuum that relieves pain and restores balance by moving qi and releasing toxins from the skin. The cups are either stationary or moved along the area of pain.
