Tuina massage – a form of Chinese medical massage that aims to correct imbalance of Yin and Yang and improve energy flow. Regular tuina massage can correct orthopedic and traumatology issues
Tuina is relatively new to the West but its roots in China are ancient. Archaeological studies have dated it back to at least 2,700 BC, making it the forefather of all forms of massage and bodywork that exist today from shiatsu to osteopathy. Throughout its history, tuina has been developed, refined and systematized by doctors in the colleges and hospitals of Traditional Chinese Medicine throughout China.
Tuina is a unique form of remedial massage typically used for medical purposes instead of relaxation. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques to stimulate related acupuncture points, channels and muscles, Tuina works not only on the muscles and joints but also establishes a harmonious flow of Qi, allowing the body to heal itself naturally. Tuina can be used alone to improve circulation and strengthen the body, or in synergy with acupuncture and herbs for the treatment of many diseases.
