Tuina is one of the branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) along with Acupuncture, Herbal medicine and other TCM therapies. It is a form of medical massage based on the acupoints and meridians. All hospitals in China have a Tuina department and the therapy is seen to be on the same level as acupuncture. Tuina techniques date back over 2,000 years and are used extensively to treat internal conditions as well as musculoskeletal issues. A skilled Tuina practitioner can utilise a wide range of techniques, including kneading, rolling, pressing, and rubbing, which activates the flow of Qi and restores harmony to the body.
