Tui-na which means ‘Pinch and Pull’ is a massage that is designed to address specific conditions on the body. Unlike other massages that provide pleasure and relaxation, Tui-na is used to manipulate the acupuncture channels in the body to create harmonization and balance.
Thus because of this manipulation, this treatment is often picked as a substitute when acupuncture is inappropriate to be used as a treatment. Being practiced in China for more than 2000 years, the therapist uses the method like knead and roll to reduce swelling and pain. Its long history shows the stability and effectiveness of this method.
