Chinese Tuina-therapy is based on the same philosophy as Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. It all has to do with the free flow of Qi in the body. This can be done in several ways. The Tuina-therapy knows a variety of manipulations to unblock the blocked Qi and to restore the harmony of the Qi. Rubbing or patting along the meridians stimulates the flow of Qi in the meridians. Also, manipulation of the joints and manipulation on certain acupuncture points such as pressing, squeezing and nipping are performed. Actually, the name Tui means pushing and Na means grasping, so pushing and grasping in other words Tuina massage. The Tuina-therapy, however, comprises also cupping and moxibustion.
