As regular clients are aware I completed a Tuina Diploma in 2015. Most people haven't heard of Tuina as it is not commonly used in the UK. In China, however it is widely used to great benefit.
Tuina is a form a Chinese medical massage used largely in the treatment of pain or musculoskeletal injuries. It is used to return and maintain stability to the muscles, thus creating a balance between strength and relaxation. Once the muscles and tissues achieve this balance, Qi and Blood can move freely throughout the body, restoring health.
Tuina is usually delivered fully clothed; you just need to remove your shoes. A white sheet is placed over the patient and massage is delivered through this. Occasionally a medical ointment may be placed on the skin, requiring removal of clothes in the affected area.
