Tuina has often been described as an acupressure technique used to stimulate the body’s vital energies (Qi) and meridians. The practitioner may use fingers, elbows, knees and hand techniques to provide relief for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, several other forms of acute and chronic pain, as well as stress related disorders such as insomnia, headaches, and constipation; and works with the body’s energies at a deeper level. In TCM terms, Tuina is considered an external treatment, corresponding to the Eight Principles first discussed in the seminal TCM text “Yellow Emperors Canon of Medicine” (475-221 BCE) and is considered to be the forerunner of all forms of bodywork and therapeutic manipulation. A typical treatment session lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour and is always tailored to the individual patient’s needs.
Tuina is one of the most established, trusted, and reliable treatment modalities in TCM and we invite you to the Xiaolan Health Centre to experience the healing potential of Tuina for yourself.
