Tuina is the ancient art of qi-gong style massage. Literally meaning “push and squeeze,” it utilizes the acupuncture meridian system to get profound therapeutic results. While many modern styles focus exclusively on the physical and anatomical aspects, we consider the concepts of qi (energy) and human touch as critical factors in successful tuina practice. Adhesions in the muscle are very important to address because they cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints.
The practice of foot reflexology massage involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet in order to affect various parts of the body in accordance with reflexology, the theory that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body.

Cupping is a traditional therapy in Chinese medicine and also used in several other cultures and countries, in which heated cups applied to the body create a suction effect on the skin, aiding the release of toxins by pulling them up to where there is healthy circulation. We typically use cupping in conjunction with manual therapy, or tuina. The manual massage helps to facilitate the removal of toxins and gives a better result than cupping alone.
