What is Tuina?

Tuina is a manual therapy used in Traditional Chinese Medicine alongside acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, herbalism, Tai Chi and Qigong. Tui means “to push” and Na means “to lift and squeeze.” Using a variety of techniques including rolling, kneading, tapotement, acupressure, and traction, the aim is to strengthen the defensive Qi and increase it’s flow along the meridians. Tuina along with daily Qigong practice can be very effective in helping chronic musculoskeletal and physiological imbalances. A typical session lasts 60-90 minutes and is performed fully clothed on a chair or massage table.
