Tuina Massage

Chinese manual therapy is an effective method of treatment for both pain management and the treatment of disease. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment to provide a needle-free alternative to acupuncture, or used in addition to acupuncture or cupping. Tuina integrates acupressure on specific points as well as rolling, pressing, and other massage techniques to release areas of tension, improve circulation, and restore muscle balance. It can also be used like acupuncture for treating internal or underlying health conditions, whether musculoskeletal or internal.
