Tuina massage is the form of Asian massage that most resembles Western classical massage because of many similar techniques such as kneading, rubbing, effleurage, tapping ...
Despite these similarities, the function of Tuina is therapeutic rather than for relaxation. One of the benefits of Tuina compared to a simple massage is its ability to isolate a specific problem, including chronic pain from muscles or joints such as arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasm, backache, shoulder or neck.
It can also help fight, among other things, against insomnia,
constipation, headache and migraines as well as tensions
related to stress.
