What is Tuina (Tui-na/Tui Na)?
Tuina is one of the oldest hands-on therapies that exist today and is used by one fifth of the world's population.
Tuina is a natural therapy with no side effects and no interference in the body. The massage is performed through clothing.
Tuina uses the Chinese traditional medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic premise. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques, Tuina seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system, allowing the body to naturally heal itself.
Tuina methods include the use of hand techniques such as brushing, kneading, rolling/pressing and rubbing to massage the soft tissue of the body, acupressure techniques to directly affect the flow of Qi, and manipulation techniques to realign the musculoskeletal and ligamentous relationships.
- treats all chronic musculo-skeletal pain such as neck, shoulder and back pain, sciatica and joint pain including arthritis
- treats all common chronic conditions such as headaches, migraine, IBS, insomnia, tension and restlessness
- treats all conditions that in the West would be treated by osteopaths, chiropractors and physiotherapists plus many that would require drug therapy
”The Benefits of Tuina”
The benefits of Tuina are many. The muscles relax, and chronic pain is eased. The nervous system shifts into a deeply relaxed state, which promotes self-healing and creates a sense of emotional well-being. Since the massage is performed through clothing, you may feel more comfortable receiving the massage since you do not have to remove your clothes.
Specific Benefits: Lumbar Herniated Disc Symptoms, back, shoulder, knee chronic disease also pain relief.
Does that work Lumbar Herniated Disc Treatment?
Tuina helps treat/heal hernias in the following manner:
Helps bones/muscles that have bad position to realign.
Helps inflammation around muscles by increasing blood circulation.
Releases muscles tension.
Stretches bones and pushes hernia back into position.
Desensitizes the tendons/muscles touching and around the hernia which dulls pain.
75% of hernia cases will improve with Tunia because this treatment stimulates macrophage in white blood cells which causes the macrophage to digest the hernia which is considered a foreign substance.
Treatment needs to continue beyond being free of pain. When you aren’t in pain, you may feel like you are healed, but the hernia is still there. It just isn’t touching the nerves or pushing the muscles/tendons which is what will cause the pain. Treatment needs to continue until the hernia is gone. You will know when hernia is gone when neck or back doesn’t have stress. For example, if you turn your head and your neck or arms feels pressure/tension the hernia most likely is still there.
How often do I need to come/how long will it take to heal?
Ideally, twice a week for the first two months, but a minimum of once a week. After, the first two months, weekly or every two weeks. Usually it takes 10 months to 1 year.
Additional things that will help improve your condition:
- Always maintain correct posture when using computer, keyboard/piano, etc
- When carrying large items, use the buddy system
- Don’t turn your head or look up/down suddenly
- When reading a book, magazine or computer look don’t look down too far.
- Mattress should not be too soft. Pillow should not be too high.

After having jogged over 12 miles I went for a massage for hip pain. It was very relaxing and helped the tightness and pain in my hip fade away. I highly recommend Takeshi and his therapy. Dr.C.K. ★★★★
I went to Takeshi because I was suffering from chronic neck pain. This was my first massage, and I didn't know what to expect. Although he focused on my neck, he gave me an hour-long, full-body massage that was thoroughly relaxing and relieved my neck pain. I had increased mobility after the session as well. I would recommend him to anyone looking for some pain relief or just a great, relaxing massage. Mrs. D.B. ★★★★★
I love it, I think he is better then my Doctor. Mr. R.D. ★★★★★★★
I have been dealing with severe pain due to pinched nerves in my lower back caused by years of abuse by snowboarding, and gymnastics. I have tried chiropractic treatments, but it didn't treat muscle and joint problems. After some researching, I heard about Tuina massage. I looked around Colorado and found Takeshi Muro to be one of the best in the business. He has a solid background and training from Shanghai Tradition Chinese Medicine University. Takeshi Muro focused on my back and coccyx area, using acupressure, chiropractic and massage techniques. He also taught me stretching exercises to take home with me.Every time I leave his office, I feel relaxed and the pain has subsided substantially. I used to see him once a week, but as my condition improved, I reduce it to once a month. He has helped me out with my back and I'm so glad I found him. Mr.T.K. ★★★★★
Takeshi's massage is very helpful. Mr. Mrs. T. ★★★★★
