Tuina-Massage Therapy

 

Tuina-massage is a therapy used to prevent disease or maintain health based on the theory of the zang-fu organs and meridians. It consists of a variety of manipulations of acupoints or certain parts of the body. Commonly-used maneuvers are pushing, rubbing pressing, kneading, pinching, twisting, rolling, twirling, shaking, vibrating, tapping, patting, revolving, etc. Tuina-massage works to move qi and blood, relax muscles and tendons, and remove obstructions from meridians. Thus, the functions of the zang-fu organs are regulated and the body’s resistance is strengthened. It is also very effective in treating disorders of the motor or nervous system.
