Tui Na/Oriental body work therapy
TuiNa is an Oriental bodywork therapy that is part of Traditional Chinese medicine. It incorporates a manual manipulation of the body's channels and meridians to establish a harmonious flow of Qi, promoting the body's self-healing mechanisms. TuiNa methods include massaging the muscles and tissues of the body and acupressure techniques to directly affect the flow of Qi.
