Tuina Massage

6128060_mTuina Massage, roughly translated as “push grasp,” is a manual therapy arising from the rich medical traditions of China. Tuina techniques are administered based on your diagnosis, which means your session is tailored to your body’s needs.

Typically beginning a treatment with 15 to 45 minutes of Jin Shou Tuina gives his patients the benefit of:

•    Settling in to a deeply relaxed state
•    Relief from pain
•    More supple tissues,  and increased mobility
•    Enhanced circulation of blood in the body, and
•    Increased energy, aka “qi”

What ‘s more, the practice of Tuina massage can reduce the demand for acupuncture needles in treatment.
