Commnity Tui Na with David Lesseps
Starting February 2nd, Circle Community Acupuncture will offer community tui na every Monday.
Tui Na is the therapeutic massage of Chinese medicine. It uses pressure, rolling, stretching, pinching, shaking, kneading, joint mobilization, and traction to soothe the body of aches and to vitalize one's energy. It can also incorporate glass fire cupping and gua sha (scraping) for specific complaints.
Tui Na sessions can range from just a few minutes of attention on one problem area, to over an hour of full body massage. Techniques are administered with the patient lying on a table or sitting on a stool and usually remaining fully clothed.
David Lesseps is one of the owners of Circle CA and as well as being a licensed acupuncturist he is also a certified massage therapist specializing in Tui Na. On Monday evenings he will be available for tui na appointments or drop-in sessions.
Rates: $1/minute. Available in 15 minute increments all the way up to 90 minutes.
