Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage)

Based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Tuina – meaning “push and grasp” is a form of medical massage. The practitioner balances the Qi, the vital substances, and the internal organs to increase vitality and improve health.  Tuina, as practiced in China, encompasses a great breadth of healing work, which in western medicine would be compartmentalized into the various specialties of orthopedics, physical therapy, massage, sports medicine and energy work.
