What happen during a Tui Na session?

A typical session of TUI NA is practiced on a person dressed in comfortable clothes lying on a massage table or sitting. 

The practitioner adapts to the specific needs of each person thanks to the diversity of TUI NA techniques that combine gestures made with different parts of the body, applied on different areas of the receptor with more or less force or pressure.

Is it true that TUI NA is painful ?   Vigorous massages, or strong ones that can be painful or uncomfortable during therapeutic massages in particular. This is sometimes necessary to tone a muscle or energy point so the practitioner must be able to communicate and the recipient to whom it is advisable to tell his feelings.  Most of the time I useTui Na at the end of the session to allow my client to evacuate the superficial tensions, most often located along the neck, shjoulder, upper or lower back as well as limbs.
