One of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, Tuina—pronounced “too-way-nah”—encompasses massage techniques that practitioners have continually refined since around 2700 BC. Tuina’s staff moulds muscles and teases out tensions by using circular kneading, rolling movements, and ball-pit submersion. Couples can connect as Tuina therapists unburden taut sinews, and individuals can opt for the stress-subduing power of a four-hand massage or the battle-tested techniques of one Tuina’s master practitioners. Buyers may also add additional services such as cupping, guasha, or hotstone ($20 for 15 minutes), or apply the deal value toward upgraded services such as a one-hour massage by a Tuina Grand Master whose distinctions include years of experience and the best hair in any social setting.
