At Wason RMT-TCM Tuina Massage and Acupuncture, therapists work to effectively reduce pain and stress. To achieve these means they reach for Western techniques such as Thai massage, Shiatsu massage, as well as tuina, which together form a signature massage style formed by Wason Wu. Tuina, for example, is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy, where practitioners knead, roll, and rub the areas between the joints to improve energy flow within the meridians and muscles. Shiatsu massage, on the other hand, uses both fingers, thumbs, palms, and feet to apply pressure which is said to regulate the activity of the autonomic nervous system. Such sessions may be complemented by traditional Chinese acupuncture treatment during which tiny needles are inserted along the meridians.
