Tuina

Tuina

This modality uses gentle pressure on various muscle groups and acupuncture points to to relieve congealed blood and body fluids causing tight tense hardened muscles. Often gentle traction is used to realign joints that have become slightly misplaced due to tight muscles that pull on ligaments and joints, this opens spaces for fresh blood flow to enter. Fresh blood flow brings nutrients and oxygen which in turn heals tissues and rids pain. Tuina is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to increase the healing effects.
