Don’t like needles?

If you are not comfortable with needles then tuina may provide a suitable alternative.

Tuina (pronounced twee-nah; literally “push and grasp”) is a Chinese medical massage system and is part of the larger Chinese medicine tradition.

Specific massage techniques and manipulations are applied on a fully clothed patient in order to alleviate musculoskeletal pain, aches, and soreness.

Like all of Chinese medicine, tuina considers the whole patient and his/her situation rather than focussing just on individual symptoms. This way a tuina practitioner may get to the root of the problem and treat more efficiently.
