TUINA, as a special type of so-called “manual therapy,“ constitutes one of the main pillars of TCM.
TUINA denotes pushing and rubbing techniques, including acupressure as well as variations of pressure treatments of the meridian points (by finger, fist, elbow, etc.).
Through a manual stimulation of special points (subdivided into local, remote, and diagonal ones) and the meridians, joints and muscles are mobilized and stretched.
These massage treatments have been carried over the centuries and differentiated into an autonomous medicinal treatment.
The different (partly in-depth) therapies regulate Qi (energy) on the spot as well as along the meridians in the entire body, and stimulates circulation. Through this stimulation, the body’s yin & yang and the function circles of the five elements (Chinese system of organs) are regenerated.
TUINA as a therapy type is suitable for treatments of health disorders of inner organs, as well as of neurological structures and distinctly vegetative symptom constellations.
The therapy strategy represents a holistic approach and takes multicausal points of view into consideration. The entire system of a human body as well as its environment and natural influences are contemplated.
