Tuina is a combination of massage and manipulation techniques. In certain situations, it is not enough to restore energetic balance. Physical stretching and manipulation of the tissue maybe required to address structural blockages or dysfunction. In the West, these skills are frequently performed by chiropractors and physical therapists.
At East West Healing Arts we are licensed in both acupuncture and physical therapy, and have over 25 years of expertise in these areas. Patients with brain injuries and strokes will greatly benefit from the combination of acupuncture and exercise therapy, whereas pain patients frequently need massage and manipulations, as well as acupuncture.
