Tuina is a gentle but dynamic form of massage, quickly gaining in popularity.
Starting in June 2012, Tom will be treating patients undergoing chemotherapy as part of an initiative by the Penny Brohn Cancer Care charity, in Bristol. It is hoped that this pilot scheme will produce some useful indications about acupuncture's effectiveness in relieving the side-effects of such treatments.
