Chinese Tuina Massage is a massage technique based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. The different energy channels in the body are stimulated by means of very varied manipulation techniques through which energy blockages are removed. In addition, this massage ensures good blood circulation in the body, which improves organ functions enabling the body to relax better. Furthermore, Tuina uses many techniques to loosen joints, which in the west is also known as chiropratic treatment or bone cracking.
A specialist in Tuina Massage is present in our center. He is an expert with regard to disorders of the bones, joints and muscles. One part of the treatment of Tuina Massage is the method called die-da, roughly translated, “falling down and hitting”. This treatment method is often used for bruises, sprains and sprains. By stimulating the blood flow in the bruised area, the bruise can heal faster. If necessary, herbs are also applied to the bruise. Tuina is also very suitable for the treatment of many childhood illnesses. Since children are often afraid of Acupuncture treatment, afraid for the needles which are inserted, manual stimulation of the Acupuncture points (acupoints) can be a solution.
