Medicine Grove provides Tuina Massage which is intense and invigorating involving muscle/tendon plucking and rolling techniques for muscle pain and healthy blood flow. Tui na is a Chinese form of body work meaning “push” and “grasp”. It involves muscle/tendon plucking and rolling techniques, among others, and is highly effective at breaking stagnant knots and adhesions, and bringing healthy blood flow back into an area. Tui na differs from some other forms of massage, such as Swedish, in that its goal is not relaxation, and generally does not involve the entire body. Rather, it is generally quite intense and invigorating to specific areas of pain. Tui na further differs from deep tissue and shiatsu in that it’s technique is much quicker and has a specific vibrating quality.
