Tuina pronounced “too-way-nah” is a manual therapy that stimulates the acupuncture points and can be viewed as a form of acupressure. Tuina Massage is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Archaeological studies have dated it back to around 2700 BC, making it the forefather of modern day massage and bodywork. Tuina is a very popular form of treatment with the people in China. This therapy makes use of rhythmic compression techniques along different energy channels of the body to establish harmonious flow of Qi throughout the body and bringing it back to balance. It works deeply with the positive energy of the body.
According to Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, “The main benefit of Tuina Massage is that it focuses on the specific problem, whether it is an acute or a chronic pain associated with the joints, muscles or skeletal system. This technique is beneficial in reducing the pain of neck, shoulders, back, arms, and legs. Other benefits of this massage therapy include alleviation of stress related disorders.”
