An Mo-Tui Na
Dao Yin (yoga)
Most of us at some time in our lives experience some kind of physical malfunction, if you’re lucky given a a few days or weeks it might put itself right, after all the human body has a great ability to fix itself. So the simple option is just to wait and see if it can fix itself.
If however you find yourself in serious discomfort or you’re just just not that patient, you may want to give the body a bit of a nudge to get it back on track.
‘Giving it a nudge’ is very much the approach I take to therapy, because the body can usually fix itself, giving it a nudge we can help it fix itself more quickly. The benefit of not forcing a fix on the body is that a fix that the body finds for itself will in most cases be long lasting. Force the body and it’s very likely you’ll need another fix in a few weeks time.
An Mo - Tui Na is a traditional form of Chinese Bodywork that dates back thousands of years. It involves various manual massage techniques, passive and active stretches and gentle joint manipulations. Please note: There are no forced or harsh joint ‘crunching’ techniques that you may have experienced previously. Joints are controlled by the soft tissue that surrounds them, address the soft tissue and the joint will look after itself.
An Mo - Tui Na is usually delivered as a whole body therapy and a typical treatment will usually take over an hour. It can be delivered through light clothing. Sometimes An Mo does involve the use of oils on the skin, where deeper structural work is required.
Depending on the problem, most people require three to four treatments over four to six weeks.
Where appropriate I also teach some ‘Dao Yin’ which is a form of Yoga that emerged in China around 2,000 years ago. It’s great way to help the corrections done in therapy stick over the longer term.
