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 bodywork the first ten minutes of the session to stimulate certain meridians and points. Then acupuncture is administered and patients are left to rest an additional 20-50 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.

I have been seeing Jamie Holland for more than a year now and he is truly amazing. I work with my hands constantly and can honestly say he is the reason I can keep working without pain. Always great energy, great acupuncture and great cupping. He is incredibly detail oriented and has such a high level of compassion. Can’t recommend Lakewood Community Acupuncture enough!

Jamie is one of the BEST acupuncturists I have ever worked with. Always calming and good hearted, he is a great energy to be around. Also always sleep better and feel less stressed after my appointments. I recommend everyone I know to see him!

Jamie (co-founder + practitioner) is an incredibly kind and effective healer. As a person with three chronic infections, I am usually pretty hesitant to seek out new treatments. I am so glad I got over my fear and made an appointment with Jamie, however, because I finally feel like both my chronic pain and fatigue are much more manageable. Thank you for all you do, Jamie! I am beyond grateful for you and Lakewood Community Acupuncture as a whole.

I went in for my first-ever acupuncture treatment, and Jamie was amazing! He was so helpful and thorough, and took the time to explain exactly what he was doing since I'm new to the practice. I also tried cupping for the first time here as well, and I noticed an immediate difference after the session. I'll definitely be back!
