Tuina (Deep Tissue Medical Massage)

Tuina translates loosely into "push-grasp". Physically, it is the pressing and kneading with palms, fingertips, knuckles to help the body to remove blockages along the meridians of the body and stimulates the flow of qi and blood to promote healing, similar to principles of acupuncture and acupressure. Tuina's massage-like techniques range from light stroking to deep-tissue work which would be considered too vigorous or too painful for a recreational or relaxing massage.

"This place is a real find! The best deep tissue massage i've had and very effective acupuncture! They really know their stuff and are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend them!"– swimmingdragon (web review)

Cupping therapy has widened significantly though in the last few years and newer techniques are being used for conditions and diseases away from sports therapy such as migraines and eczema." – BBC article
