What is Tuina?

Tuina Massages

Tuina (推拿) massage is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that addresses patterns of disharmony in the body by improving the overall Qi energy flow throughout the body. Though a relatively new practice in the West, tuina massage has been practiced in China for over 2,000 years. Tuina works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians, and groups of muscles or nerves to free the flow of Qi energy throughout the body. This allows the body to naturally heal itself and leads to improved overall health and vitality.
