Tuina Bodywork Therapy

How Can Tuina Bodywork Benefit You

Tuina bodywork is a very powerful therapeutic modality used at Lakewood Community Acupuncture before an acupuncture session to warm up the channels and energy of the body and make the acupuncture treatment more effective. The patient leaves clothing on for the treatment and the acupuncturist works along the meridians of the body through compressions, rolling, plucking, rocking and kneading (similar to shiatsu). Patients receive a short bodywork session to stimulate certain meridians and points. Then acupuncture is administered and patients are left to rest an additional 30 minutes with the needles in place. For those who don't want/need acupuncture, we also offer Tuina Bodywork and Cupping Therapy together. 

What is Tuina Bodywork?

Tuina Bodywork Therapy is a traditional Chinese bodywork modality that is its own unique bodywork system dating back thousands of years, from which many modern massage and chiropractic techniques stem from. Despite some similarities to western massage, the intent of Tuina Bodywork Therapy is more specifically therapeutic and incorporates theories and diagnosis techniques found in Chinese medicine in conjunction with modern anatomy and physiology. Occasionally, liniments and oils are used to increase blood circulation and healing, as well as other therapies like cupping and guasha.

Tuina tends to be a vigorous, deep tissue therapeutic bodywork. Techniques include: gliding (effleurage), kneading (petrissage), percussion (tapotement), friction, pulling, rotation, rocking, vibration, rolling and shaking. These techniques are performed for approximately ten minutes, prior to an acupuncture treatment while the patient is fully clothed.

Jamie was amazing! He was so nice and very knowledgeable. It was my first time getting acupuncture and he explained each step and what to expect. I would definitely recommend him.

I recently had an incredible experience at this place, and I don't even know where to begin. I found myself in unbearable back pain, unable to stand up straight, and unsure of what caused it. Fortunately, I was able to schedule a prompt appointment, and Jamie's expertise was truly amazing! After receiving both cupping and acupuncture treatments, I noticed a remarkable improvement right away and within just two days, i was 95% back to my normal self. Don't hesitate to book an appointment here—it made a significant difference for me.

This is the best place ever! I get cupping and acupuncture when my back starts acting up and leave feeling like 50 pounds was lifted off my back. Crystal and Jamie are very thorough in their questions to understand what’s going on and the treatment they provide. And the prices can’t be beat. 10/10

I have been going to Lakewood Community Acupuncture for over a year and can’t imagine my life without it now!! It can truly help with so much - from physical pain (I have issues with my pelvic floor and multiple herniated discs) to emotional blocks, energy deficiencies and more! I ALWAYS feel better after acupuncture. I’ve seen all the practitioners and they are all extremely skilled, but Crystal is my go-to. She is not only very gentle and effective but always a delight to connect with. For the quality of service, atmosphere and price, you cannot do better. It’s been a game changer for me. Wholeheartedly recommend!!

Crystal is great! I have a compressed l4 l5 and my back has been really tight due to the disk pushing into a nerve. I have completed 2 acupuncture sessions and can already feel the muscles relaxing!
