Welcome

Chinese Tui Na was called ‘An Mo’ or massage in ancient times. The term Tui Na was first seen during the Ming Dynasty. Chinese Tui Na is a therapeutic approach guided by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and was first used to treat paediatric disease through massage manipulations. Tui Na is a very important component of Chinese Medicine alongside acupuncture and herbal prescription.

Today Tui Na has become very advanced in its treatment for many diseases. Used in many of the hospitals in China today in the front line of healthcare, whereas in the west these complaints are not seen in our clinics until they become chronic many days after the incident.

Errol Lynch formed Tui Na UK in 2004 following many years of clinical practice and training in China. The intentions are to spread the word of tuina as an independent cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine.

Massage pre and post event
Over the last 10 years in London and York we have been working with many sports people amateur and professional and their main concern is the finance. To pursue a sport then there is an injury, the loss of that investment is worrying.
Many people can‘t afford the treatment and do not have Bupa, HSA or an insurance plan to cover. The NHS does not really cover sports injuries and they are not so sympathetic In the A&E when you go for treatment. The options are ant-inflammatory, anti-pain, physiotherapy or an operation.
