Chinese Burns Are A Thing




Did your older siblings,neighbours or schoolyard bullies ever grab your arm and give you a Chinese burn ? You know,when they grab your limb and twist their hands in opposite directions to give the feeling of skin burning whilst turning it a red colour.

Even though this may have felt like torture at the time,your oppressors were actually using a legitimate Chinese massage technique – albiet in an extreme form.

When used with some lubrication,or lightly employed over clothing,the Chinese burn is  very effective in releasing and invigorating tired and sore arms.From hairdressers to carpenters,painters to typists,this move gives quick and easy relief.In conjunction with colourful sounding moves like rubbing,pinching scraping and rolling, it forms the group of highly effective techniques that make up Chinese massage.
