Tuina is a Chinese massage technique from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which has been practiced for 2200 years. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll, press, and rub the stiff area to get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles. Techniques may be gentle or quite firm. Tuina helps relax the muscles, everything that is stuck will be loosened. We combine Tuina and ear acupuncture or cupping to enhance the effect.
Cupping is generally used to mobilize blood flow and expel the moist cold energy from the body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), cupping is often used in combination with acupuncture to treat colds and muscle aches.
