Tui Na

Tui Na

Tui Na is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, cupping therapy, gua sha and Qigong, among other modalities, and is an integral part of TCM and is taught in TCM schools as part of formal training in Oriental medicine.

Tui na is a hands-on form of Asian bodywork that uses Chinese Taoist and martial arts principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of TCM into balance. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press, and rub the areas between each of the joints and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles. The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, and massage, with the stimulation of acu-points.
