Tuina Therapy: Treatment of Adults and Children provides detailed instructions for using the art of Chinese tuina to treat disorders of the locomotor system, gynecological and gastrointestinal diseases, pediatric ailments, and more.

The high-quality images clearly demonstrate the practitioner's movements, making them easy to replicate.

Features:

  • Over 250 photographs guide readers through each step of the various techniques
