Tui na is an ancient form of massage therapy and a popular treatment for disease, stress, and injury. The most important benefits of this
deep tissue massage are repaired musculoskeletal conditions, strengthened immune system, improved sleep patterns, and increased energy.
Ultimately, Tui na brings body to balance.
Today, Tui na is used to treat children and adults. Tui na is subdivided into specialized treatments for orthopedics, traumatology, cosmetology,
rehabilitation, and sports medicine.
A Tui na massage practitioner brushes, rubs, rolls, and presses the areas between the joints to open the body's defensive life-force, chi, and gets
energy moving both in the energy channels called meridians and in the muscles. The practitioner continues the massage with the stimulation of acupressure
points to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions; to alleviate pain; to increase a patient's
range of movements, to improve alignment, and to relax muscles.
During a session, the client wears loose clothing and lies on a table as the therapist works on the patient's body. Tui na massage does not require
undressing, showering, or oil and can therefore be given at your office. The time for Tui na massage may vary from 30 minutes to 1.5 hour.
A former professional athlete and internationally known yoga teacher, Adnan wanted to use his profound understanding of anatomy and the human body
to aid others.
In 2000, Adnan obtained a massage therapist diploma in Shiatsu and Swedish massage. Combining a deep knowledge of anatomy with these massage techniques,
he helped many people achieve better physical health.
Adnan's focus on self-improvement and his desire to expand his ability to heal himself and others brought him to Taiwan, where he studied the art of Tui na
massage - Chinese medical massage and structural alignment techniques - with renowned Dr. Lin Zhong Hsien.
Since the beginning of 2011, Adnan lives, practices and teaches in Ottawa and continues his studies in Tui na with Dr. Wenrong Chen in Vancouver.
