Tui Na Therapy
Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist and martial arts principles in an effort to bring the body into balance. Tui Na is a therapeutic form of massage and manipulation and has been used in China for more than 2,000 years. This Chinese therapy makes use of rhythmic compression techniques along different energy channels of the body. The practitioner uses range of motion, traction, and the stimulation of acupressure points to establish harmonious flow of Qi throughout the body and help bring it back to balance. It works deeply with the positive energy of the body..
These techniques are claimed to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions. Tui na is an integral part of TCM and is taught in TCM schools as part of formal training in Oriental medicine.
Many East Asian martial arts schools also teach Tui na to their advanced students for the treatment and management of injury and pain due to training. As with many other traditional Chinese medical practices, there are several different schools with greater or smaller differences in their approach to the discipline.
