How Tuina Works

A sophisticated system

Tuina comes from Chinese medicine and has a very long history. Over the centuries, Chinese doctors have developed and refined various techniques and manipulations to form a complete healing system. It is said that there are more than 300 techniques, manipulations and mobilizations in Tuina; while some of them are somewhat similar to what we can find in osteopathy or other types of massage, many techniques are unique to Tuina therapy.

It can treat more than pain

Tuina is an effective therapeutic tool, which is not only useful in treatment of pain and injury, but also in certain conditions such as dysmenorrhea and digestive disorders. Tuina is also the preferred approach in the treatment of young children age 0 to 6; pediatric tuina is a specialization in itself and it is very effective approach in treating common childhood health problems.

A good complement to acupuncture treatment

Tuina massage is an effective therapeutic approach by itself. However, it is often worthwhile to combine tuina massage with other approaches of Chinese medicine, such as cupping, acupuncture or Chinese herbs to obtain the best treatment result.

A solid training

I was first introduced to Tuina therapy during my first trip to China in 2004. I was impressed with the effectiveness of this approach and the high skill level of the doctors that taught me. I decided to follow my passion to manual therapy (I already had a solid training in Shiatsu massage), and did a year-long training in Chinese hospitals under the supervision of various chinese doctor specialized in tuina therapy. Upon returning to Canada, I quickly integrated Tuina into my clinical practice. Over the years, I have seen how Tuina can make a huge difference in treatment results. I now return to china on a regular basis to perfect my techniques and knowledge of tuina, and I also teach medical tuina and pediatric tuina here in Montreal and Brossard.
