What is Tui Na?

The Chinese term "Tui Na" translated in English is "Acupressure."  "Tui" means "pushing" and "Na" means "grasping." Tui Na is a form of Chinese therapy that has been used widely in China for over 2,000 years. Often used in combination with acupuncture, it is a hands-on body treatment used to bring the body into a balanced state. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints to get the energy moving throughout the body and the muscles.

Chinese Medicine represents a combination of ideas and methods from earlier times combined with the findings from modern research methods, such as chemical analysis, pharmacological laboratory testing, and clinical trials. Chinese Medicine is a major healthcare method for over half of the world's population. Due to its proven success throughout Asia, the former Soviet Union and Europe, Chinese medical practices are now being adopted in Western cultures.
