Surprising Benefits of Tui Na Chinese Massage Therapy

Updated: Apr 1, 2022

Tui Na massage originated in China and is used for therapeutic purposes. It utilizes Traditional Chinese Medicine principles and acupressure techniques, however, instead of using needles practitioners use finger pressure to manipulate acupoints. The name of this massage therapy comes from the two words that describe the rhythmic pushing ”Tui" and squeezing "Na" that is used in this treatment. Incorporating Tui Na during regular acupuncture sessions may also help to yield better results.

What Is Tui Na?

Tui Na massage uses pressing, stretching, and mobilizing of soft tissue to promote circulation in the body and provide therapeutic benefits.

Tui Na often includes the use of acupressure points. Having Tui Na massage in conjunction with acupuncture can help to activate the body's potential and enhance the treatment results.

Let's dive into the surprising benefits of Tui Na Chinese Massage Therapy.

Benefits of Tui Na

1. Relieves Neck and Back Pains

People who work at a desk for long hours often find it difficult to sustain good posture and as a result, are more likely to suffer chronic pain in the neck and back.

Suffering from neck and back pain can cause significant discomfort. Tui na therapy can be an effective way to get rid of such pain and prevent further injuries.

A research study from 2018 found that people who received Tui Na therapy two times a week for three weeks were able to heal their chronic neck pain and find significant relief.

Similarly, a research study from 2016 concluded that Tui Na therapy is effective when combined with regular exercising to get rid of back pain.

2. Reduces Stress and Depression

Depression and anxiety are becoming more prevalent today. Antidepressant medication may work for some people, however, others may want to opt for a different alternative due to the side effects. Receiving a therapeutic Tui Na massage can help to relax your muscles and release endorphins, thus relieving stress and assisting with the effects of depression.

A research study from 2015 shows that Tui Na can be effective against depression and mental instability.

3. Treats Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

Arthritis causes joint swelling and stiffness which typically worsen with age. It is a chronic condition that deteriorates the body over time and causes increasing discomfort if left unmanaged.

Tui na therapy is effective in treating arthritis in the knee according to a research study.

Osteoarthritis causes cartilage to break down (cartilage is the hard, slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones between joints). People suffering from osteoarthritis should consider Tui Na massage.

A study conducted in 2011 showed that Tui Na therapy improved muscular tension of the flexor and extensor in the knee of patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.

Tui Na Chinese Massage therapy is a valid option if you're experiencing arthritis or osteoarthritis symptoms. The deterioration of healthy bones and joints can compound over time and cause significant discomfort.

4. Treats Early-stage Diabetic Foot

Diabetic patients often suffer from a condition called "diabetic foot". Whereby it causes swelling and chronic pain in the feet and legs.

If you notice any of the symptoms of "diabetic foot", you should seek professional advice immediately.

A 2018 research study proved that patients who take Tui Na therapy in conjunction with foot baths have a higher likelihood of getting rid of early-stage "diabetic foot".
