TCM TUINA treatment

Tuina (manual therapy) is an important part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine and is based on the principles of Acupuncture, the five-phase conversion theory, meridian system and the acupressure points.

By massaging, pressing, rubbing and soaking certain points, the meridian system and mobilization of the joints influences the energy (Qi) flow, in order to harmonize yin and yang and the basic functions of the body.

The acupuncture points are stimulated by manual techniques or/and heat (Moxa) and not with needles.

Tuina is therefore suitable for those who are afraid of needles. Therefore Tuina is also a successful treatment for children.
