Tui Na Massage In Swansea

Unlike many conventional massage therapies tui na massage works on traditional chinese medicine principals and uses acupuncture meridians and points to achieve a cure. It can work on both external conditions, such as musculo-skeletal issues or internal conditions, such as stress and irritable bowel syndrome.

I am a Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher, taking inspiration from BKS Iyengar and am fortunate to have been taught by Godfrey Devereux, Sarah Wilde, Olivia Crooke and Atmananda Das. Where possible I like to bring in yoga principles to help affect a cure for my patients.
When I’m not working I spend alot of my free time outside enjoying the beautiful South Wales coastline and hills with my family. In particular I love to swim, run, surf and paddle board.
My particular interests are pain management and management of stress, anxiety and depression. Whilst Chinese massage is very effective in pain management, when it reaches its limits I use a mixture of Traditional Chinese Medicine, trigger point therapy and bio-medical acupuncture.
I closely follow the latest developments in acupuncture treatment for pain management and study Dr Yun Tao Ma’s work on this and sports and trauma rehabilitation.
