Tuina (Chinese manual therapy)

 

Tuina (Tui-na) is clinical Chinese massage used mostly to treat muscle and joint problems, such as inflammation, pain, and reduced range of motion. It is composed of special movements that create a pull-push-slide effect on the affected area. Tuina increases the flow of blood to certain areas of the body leading to a faster healing of the tissue. It is mostly beneficial for back, neck, or joint pain, but can also be used for alleviating migraines or headaches.

 

My experience in the orthopedic and Tuina department in Hangzhu hospital in China was pretty amazing. As soon as I entered the large treatment hall, I noticed many treatment tables with patients laying down or seated while they were getting Tuina by providers in white lab coats. Tuina massage is very dynamic and includes pulling, pressing, or rolling of the palm on a certain muscles. It feels a bit like regular massage with faster movements. The Chinese doctors that I asked, explained to me that these movements improve circulation of blood and help the tissue to get rid of metabolic waste, such as toxins from chronic inflammation. My own experience with using Tuina in the rehabilitation department of Tel-Aviv Souraski hospital, thought me that Tuina was very effective for pain and nerve dysfunction, such as nerve pain or numbness.
