Traditional Chinese Medicine is considered to be a whole medical system by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and is used throughout the world to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Tuina massage, a form of Chinese bodywork therapy, is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) used to restore balance to the body through various forms of bodywork. With Tuina, the practitioner utilises a combination of massage, assisted stretches, and stimulation of specific acupressure points in order to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal internal conditions. The principles of TCM theory and diagnostics play a large part in Tuina.
