Osteopathic TuiNa can be seen as a synergy of osteopathy, craniosacral and massage therapy, much like a General Osteopath Technique (TOG). It targets the musculotendinous meridians (muscle chains) and the craniosacral functional unit. This combination of techniques is very effective in improving the flow of Qi (vital life force energy).
Before proceeding, the Chinese medicine professional performs an in-depth study of the person’s case to find out where the blockage comes from and which areas need to be stimulated. The patient remains dressed and the practitioner moves along the meridians. Among the techniques used, there is friction, vibration, tapping and stretching.
