tuina

Tuina is a therapeutic massage that helps relax tight muscle areas. The muscles and tendons are massaged with the hands, elbows, forearms or fingers.  Tuina helps to directly affect the flow of qi at different acupressure points of the body.  It helps to facilitate the body’s natural healing process.
