Tuina dates back 2000 years to the Shang Dynasty of China and is
based on the traditional Chinese Medical Theory of the flow of Qi
through the meridians.


Tuina treatments use massage, acupressure and manipulation
techniques along with external herbal poultices, compresses,
liniments and salves with the aim of restoring balance thus
allowing the body to naturally heal itself.


The massage and manipulation movements roll the soft tissue or
push the tissue with first one finger similar to acupressure.
Tuina treatments usually last from 30 minutes to 1 hour and involve
the client wearing loose clothes, no shoes and laying either on a
treatment couch or on a mat on the floor.


The therapist would begin by assessing their client focusing on
pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians and muscles and
joints.


Tuina differs from many forms of Chinese medicine that have a
more holistic approach.

Tuina tends to focus on the problem more specifically.
In the western world Tuina can often form a good adjunct to
Swedish massage enabling the therapist to concentrate more on
the clients problem areas, whereas in China, Tuina doctors
following the same detailed training as acupuncturists and
herbalists command the same professional respect
