Walking around the stands at Camexpo this year was eye opening as always, but I was particularly intrigued by a group of people delivering massages over a cotton sheet.
The group was Touch Tuina, and they were providing five minute taster sessions of Tuina (pronounced twee-nah) massage. I sat down to enjoy my five minute shoulder and neck massage before asking a few questions.
To onlookers, the technique looks quite ferocious, and a colleague of mine did say she felt slight discomfort at points, but I honestly didn’t (and I’m usually a wuss when it comes to strong massages!). It was firm, yes, but in the best way.
The techniques used were different to any massage I had before and I really felt it working to ease my tense muscles. It also felt a lot more ‘direct’ than other massages, like it was really targeted.
