Traditional Chinese Massage (Tui Na)

 

Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese Massage (Tui Na) involves acupressure, which is the stimulation of acupuncture points without the use of needles. It also involves a variety of massage techniques to relax muscles and stimulate blood flow, and spinal manipulation techniques that work in a similar way to chiropractic treatment.

 

According to the requirement of the disease and preference of the patient, massage can be administered in different ways. Acupressure is useful, for example, on children or people who are afraid of acupuncture needles.

 

A general massage is excellent as an aid to relaxing and coping with stress, and spinal manipulations combined with massage may be necessary for people with back or neck problems.
