Tuina-Caiqiao is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine; many people have heard of Tuina, less know much about Caiqiao.
Tuina hand techniques
Tuina is one kind of therapy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, mainly by using the hands to work on neck and lumbar spine, the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments & joints.
There are many hand techniques to, knead, push, pull, rub, pinch, twist, shake to name a few, mostly working on the neck, shoulders, arms and hands, also knees, feet and ankles.
Applying manipulation or pressure to balance body’s Yin and Yang function, promote Qi and blood circulation, smooth the joints movement, prevent and treat the disease, make the body healthy again.
The ‘yellow’ nerves can get trapped in the neck vertebrea, this will cause basic repare functions in the body to shut-down.
The ‘red’ arteries can also get restricted resulting in less blood reaching the hypothalamus and therefor affecting production of hormones throughout the body.
Part of the treatment will work to open the gap between vertebrae to allow blood to flow and nerves to function.
Caiqioa foot techniques
The Caiqiao is mainly using the foot to produce stronger pressure and manipulation: rubbing and pushing are the main two foot techniques to work on the back, legs, arms and shoulders combine with Tuina, can get better result, and save lots of energy during the treatment.
There is great skill and feeling in the foot
The result is free moving joints, blood, lymph fluid, stimulating nerves and Qi, regaining health and movement.
Other parts of TCM are herbs and diet, acupuncture, Qigong and other kinds of exercise.
What problems can we treat?
Pain and problems come when there is a blockage in the nerves from the spine and neck. This then causes a disorder in the function of the muscles, tendons, joints, the result is pain.
Pain may come from a sports injury, for repeating the same movement, such as tennis elbow, this is an excess that has caused the body to react. Very treatable but we should also be looking at the imbalance in life to make sure that we reduce over use.
Sitting is the disease of the 21st century that is causing more and more problems, we need to move more and do more exercise.
Sciatica can be treated quickly without long doctors queues, or drugs. We can simply using the Caiqiao Technique to free the nerves of the lumbar spine.
