Tui-na involves both light and strong massage techniques to rebalance the body. Tui-na is carried out with the patient dressed in loose clothes, so make sure you wear comfortable clothing when you come for treatment.
In a typical session, the client, lies on a massage table. The practitioner examines the specific problems of the client and begins to apply a specific treatment protocol. The major focus of application is upon specific pain sites, acupressure points, energy meridians, and muscles and joints.

The client usually feels relaxed and energized by the treatment.
