Oct 30, 2013 08:30AM
Mary Ling, the only nationally certified tui na bodyworker in Berks and Lancaster counties, has joined Orthopedic Medical Massage, which was opened by certified medical massage practitioner Dennis Williams in July. Ling, who owns Rejuvenation Wellness Center, in West Reading, was born in China, where a doctor of Chinese medicine trained her in Chinese medical massage through years of study and internship.
Tui na massage has a long history of healing, relaxation and restoration of the body and its energy systems. By freeing the body’s blocked energy from the meridians that correspond with the nervous and circulatory systems, tui na practitioners restore the body’s balance, keeping clients healthy and giving them a feeling of renewal after treatment. They utilize unique techniques that are more than 3,000 years old; these include rolling, thumb rolling, pushing, pinching and using the feet.
