5 Elements Tuina

5 Elements Tuina is a therapeutic form of massage we developed from Five Elements Theory. The theory of The Five Elements can be traced back to the observation of various dynamic elements in nature- fire, wood, earth, metal and water. Chinese Medicine has adapted these five phe-nomena. They are reflected in five major organs of the human body: wood-liver, fire-heart, earth-spleen, metal-lung and water-kidney. In nature The Five Elements interact with each other. The organs of the body also interact with each other. The theory of The Five Ele-ments indicates that Chinese Medicine is based on the approach of balance, development and harmony in nature.
