TuiNa Based Reflexology Massage in Vancouver

[Holistic Healing] Bodywork Therapy

TuiNa is a form of therapeutic massage targeting specific points on your body to improve the flow of Qi (气). TuiNa is a bodywork technique that can help achieve harmony between the mind, spirit. Reflexology promotes better health of specific organs by targetting specific points on your body. At UTCM, we combine the two techniques to provide our patients with superior care.

of TuiNa

TuiNa based reflexology massage targets various points on your body parts to improve the health of various organs. It is based on the theory that specific points on your body are tightly linked to certain organs. 

1. Balance and Proper Flow of Qi

Applying proper pressure on specific parts of the body can promote better health of specific body parts and improves proper flow of Qi, or energy, around your body. Tuina can restore the body to its correct physical alignment to encourage the optimal flow of Qi (energy) throughout the pathways.

2. Release of Tension

TuiNa massage penetrates deep into the soft tissue to release tension in the muscles and promote better posture, reduced pain and inflammation, and the healthy flow of Qi.

3. Blood Circulation

In order for a body to operate efficiently, correct blood circulation is critical. TuiNa bodywork therapy improves circulation to help the body to receive vital nutrients to support good health.

4. Fluid Distribution and Toxin Removal

Effective drainage of fluids in the body are critical for proper immune functionality. This fluid distribution ensures both blood and lymph nodes are carefully filtered to prevent toxin accumulation in the body.

First visit Your First Visit

At your first visit to UTCM, we will take the opportunity to listen to your concerns and health goals. After performing a holistic assessment, we will assess the causes of your health concerns and recommend a treatment plan tailored for your situation.

1. Health Questionnaire

The first visit to UTCM will involve a detailed questionnaire to help the practitioner to best understand any underlying health problems, the patient’s past medical history, and their current lifestyle. This step of the process is critical to developing a plan to treat the conditions from which the patient is seeking relief.

2. Pre-Treatment Testing

Following taking a thorough patient history, some people will require further pre-treatment testing from the UTCM clinic or a physician that specializes in traditional medicine. These tests help to determine the severity of any health conditions as well as a patient’s suitability for treatment.

3. Physical Examination

A physical examination is sometimes required. This most typically includes assessment of vital signs, basic kinesiology of the body, the palpation of areas requiring specific treatment, and examination of the condition of the tongue. The patient’s resting pulse rate will also be measured.

“... very satisfied with the service, so I have booked another appt. The massage was very good and the person who worked on me was a doctor in her home country, so you can tell she knows her stuff. The facial was very comfortable and I almost fell asleep... I will be trying the accupuncture next. Definitely legit.”
