Chinese Medical Massage is called Tuina.

Tuina is considered one of the oldest body work systems and therefore uses various massage techniques similar to acupressure, myofascial release, and Shiatsu.

Sometimes, techniques that are common to osteopathy and chiropractic, such as manipulation techniques and joint mobilizations, are also used to realign the body. 

During a session, various techniques that differ in force and speed are used. Tuina massage can be done as a stronger deep-tissue massage or a more gentle, energetic treatment.

Certain methods are yin, with a gentle, passive, and meditative approach. The yang method is more active, dynamic, and physical, producing more intense sensations by stimulating deep blockages and knots.

During my 25 years in Chinese Medicine, as well as being trained in Tuina and spending time on a Tianjin Tuina Hospital ward, I have also been trained in various massage styles such as Swedish massage, Remedial Massage and Sports Massage etc. Working alongside Osteopaths and a variety of body workers for over 20 years has further enriched my massage style and experience.
