Your attending practitioner will first conduct a consultation with you, much as they would when giving acupuncture. They will ask about your primary complaint or problem, how long you have had it and other relevant information. They may also check your tongue and pulse to aid their diagnosis.
The style of tuina given will depend on the nature of your primary complaint. Our practitioners will always communicate with you to ensure that the pressure applied is not too painful or uncomfortable and to see how you are responding to the treatment.
In general, after a Tuina massage treatment, you may feel deeply relaxed or invigorated, depending upon the way in which the massage is applied. It is normal to sometimes feel slightly sore and achy after a deep tuina session, however, this is only temporary and usually passes quickly.
