Services: Tui Na or “Chinese Massage” Acupressure treatments

Tui Na is a hands-on-body treatment using acupressure, a modality of Chinese medicine whose purpose is to bring energy into balance throughout the body. Dr. Mills has been practicing Tui Na or “Chinese massage” since 2004
She offers Tui Na sessions in her home office in Surfwood, Mendocino

How Tui-Na therapy is applied: The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press and rub areas on the 12 main meridians, to open the body’s defensive energy (wei) chi and get the energy moving, as a result reducing muscle tension, increasing local circulation to reduce discomfort and pain.

Some of the external disorders that Tui-Na can benefit include:
· Scoliosis
· Frozen-shoulder syndrome
· Sprains & strains
· Carpal tunnel syndrome
· Myofascial pain disorders
· Lower-back pain (lumbago & back spasms)
· Muscle spasms & adhesions
· TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint disturbances)
· Neck pain & stiffness
· Headaches (tension headaches or migraine headaches)
· Sports injuries (including from martial arts)
· Whiplash (car accident injuries)
· Other soft-tissue injuries
