Tuina Massage or Chinese Therapeutic Massage uses finger pressure, stretching and leverage, therefore stimulating the meridians and acupuncture points.
A Tuina massage practitioner uses a variety of techniques to achieve the desired outcome in treatment. Physical manipulations vary from light, gentle massage to deeper and stronger in nature.
Chinese medicine practitioners will often use Tuina massage in conjunction with acupuncture thereby increasing its effeciveness. It is an effective treatment for musculo-skeletal problems, such as lower-back pain, frozen shoulder, slipped discs and fractures. Additionally it can also be effective for many other conditions, particularly digestive problems and insomnia.
