Tui’Na – pronounced tway’na is a wellness treatment that combines deep tissue massage with acupuncture. The treatment promises numerous health benefits and is used to treat physical ailments such as tennis elbow, low back pain, stiff neck, sciatica, headaches and digestive problems.
The tui’na session beings with an assessment by a Mantra Wellness Centre practitioner who will ask questions to determine what is bothering you in your body, where is it that you feel pain or tenderness and what it is that you would you like to achieve from the treatment.
The assessment is then followed by a deep tissue massage during which the mantra practitioner will deliberately slip needles into your palms and at strategic points around your neck, shoulders and upper back. Each point where the needle enters is connected to a part of the body and works to improve overall circulation and restore energy balance.
After all the needles are inserted into the points of energy, an infrared light will be turned towards your back and over the areas with the most needles. Towards the end of the session, the needles are removed quickly and painlessly.
