Tuina is a form of Asian bodywork that uses touch to balance the body’s energy. Tuina literally translates to “push &pull” and involves gentle stretching and /or shaking of joints and muscles. The flow of energy affects all the body’s circulatory system, not only blood, but nerves, hormones and lymph as well.
The massaging action of tuina unblocks energy, bringing it to the surface, dispersing it, and restoring a healthy, balanced flow. Once energy is balanced, the body and brain communicate efficiently through the various systems: lymphatic, endocrine, and nervous. Immunity is enhanced, and tight, tense muscles are relaxed.
