Tuina Massage and Manipulation

Tuina has been used for over 2,000 years in China as a traditional form of gentle therapeutic massage and manipulation. Tuina involves various hand techniques, often in combination with acupuncture treatments. The Tuina methodology relies on the use of rhythmic compression techniques to relieve pressure, ease pain, enhance healing, loosen tendons and muscles, alleviate stress and aid digestive, respiratory and reproductive disorders. This therapy has also proven to be very beneficial to those who suffer from insomnia and other stress-related conditions: very common in our busy lifestyles today! Tuina balances your energies and revitalises your body, bringing your mind and body back into alignment, and assisting with clarity and focus.
