Tuina is a form of Oriental bodywork that has been used in China for centuries. Tuina works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians and groups of muscles or nerves to remove blockages that prevent the free flow of qi. Removing these blockages restores the balance of qi in the body, leading to improved health and vitality.
Tuina is best suited for rectifying chronic pain, musculoskeletal conditions and stress-related disorders that affect the digestive and/or respiratory systems. Among the ailments Tuina treats best are neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, sciatica and tennis elbow. However, because Tuina is designed to improve and restore the flow of qi, treatment often ends up causing improvements to the whole body, not just a specific area. Headaches, constipation, premenstrual symptoms and some emotional problems may also be effectively treated through Tuina
