classic chinese massage
Practiced in China for more than 4,000 years, Tuina is a deeply penetrating and vigorous massage and acupressure therapy. Tuina is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine that stimulates the flow of qi to promote balance and harmony within the body using many of the same principles of acupuncture. By applying pressure to meridians, acupoints, and groups of muscles and nerves, Tuina removes blockages and works deeply with the positive energy of the body.
Unlike Western massage techniques, Tuina goes beyond the muscles, bones, and joints to work with the body on a deeper, energetic level.
Tuina massage can be used to treat pain and illness or to maintain good health. The technique is effective in reducing stress, encouraging relaxation, and deepening sleep.
