Tuina or Chinese Therapeutic Massage has made a major contribution over thousands of years to the health of the people of China and neighboring countries. It is an important component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). As a manual therapy, Tuina is easy to perform, convenient, inexpensive, safe and effective, so it has become more and more popular not only with medical practitioners, but with the patients themselves, both in and out of China.
The seventh volume focuses on practical applications of Tuina therapy. It is a broad introduction to the art of Tuina. It gives amongst others a general overview of Tuina including its theory, characteristics, indications, contradictions, and the locations and indications of commonly used points.
