Effects of “Tui Na” in PWCs

A group in China studied 30 CFS patients and 30 healthy controls using a form of physical therapy called Tui na that led to the following conclusions: “CFS patients have lowered mechanical properties of four limbs. Tuina therapy can improve the biomechanical properties of limb skeletal muscle and reduce the overall degree of fatigue in patients. The changes of limb skeletal muscle and mechanical properties can provide objective reference for the clinical diagnosis and assessment of CFS.” (Chinese Journal of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicines, May 2012)
