Inappropriate for Tuina Conditions
Tuina can be quite powerful and even painful sometimes, especially during deep-tissue manipulations. It should not be used for conditions involving compound fractures, external wounds, open sores or lesions, phlebitis, or with infectious conditions such as hepatitis.
It should not be performed on the abdominal portion of a woman in menstrual or pregnant periods. In general, it should not be used to treat malignant tumors or tuberculosis. Always keep in mind one thing: Never go for a Tuina treatment just after eating. Wait for at least an hour or so.
