Manage Pain & Injuries With Tuina in Singapore
From a TCM point of view, pain occurs when the normal flow of Qi and Blood is disrupted. This may be caused by external factors such as physical trauma and environmental influences, or internal factors like Qi deficiency and imbalances in the internal organs. Through a series of diagnostic elements, we prescribe various treatment plans to alleviate all forms of pain, be it muscular, nervous, skeletal or soft tissue injury.
Here at Pulse, we help patients in Singapore manage both acute and chronic pain conditions including, but not limited to:
- Neck, back, shoulder or heel pain
- Injury management
- Sports injuries
- Postoperative pain
Acupuncture, cupping/ scraping, localised tuina, and herbal medication may be prescribed during the course of treatment based on each patient’s condition.
What is Tuina?
Tuina, which translates to “push and grasp,” is a form of TCM treatment widely used in Singapore that uses the hands to treat health issues. It can also be used to alleviate pain in different parts of the body. During a tuina treatment session, physicians will massage specific points on your body while you are lying face down on a massage table. From a TCM perspective, tuina allows for increased blood flow and helps rid your body of toxins which could be causing discomfort and pain in parts of your body.
Similar to acupuncture, tuina treatments involve the use of energetic meridians and acupoints to ensure that your Qi and blood is balanced in your body. This is because Qi imbalance can cause blockages, which might lead to poor blood circulation and increased pain in parts of your body.
