In ancient China, medical therapy was often classified as ‘internal’ or ‘external’. Tuina, a form of ‘hands-on’ Chinese Manipulative Therapy, is an external method specially suitable for use on people of all ages in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping. Tuina has been gaining international attention because it is a very effective therapy for arthritis, pain, sciatica and muscle spasms. Other benefits of this massage therapy include alleviation of stress-related disorders like insomnia, constipation, headaches and other disorders related to digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.
The greatest advantage of Tuina is that it focuses on maintaining overall balance with both physical and mental health. Several hospitals in China now include Tuina as a standard aspect of treatment.
