Tui-Na is a form of massage that has grown out of the TCM health model and pre-dates acupuncture by a thousand plus years which uses a number of different techniques.
Some of these techniques are similar to those used in other forms of massage, and stimulate Acu points through acu-pressure and joint mobilization. When "acupuncture points" were discovered and documented and the health benefits of the stimulation of these point recognised, it was then that the acupuncture most people know of today was discovered.
Historically when there was physical pain, muscle tears, broken bones to set, postures to reset, Tui-Na massage and a hands on manipulation of the body was needed. Through the use of a variety of different techniques we are able to encourage a response from the body to aid in the healing process.
At "To the Point" we offer a modern day Tui-Na massage, many of the old techniques are used (apart from bone setting!) which can stimulate the body to facilitate a healing response. Or you can opt for a just a relaxing therapeutic massage, to sooth away the stress and strains of normal life.
