Tui Na or Chinese Medical Massage

  • Tui na or tuina is Chinese medical massage, a form of manipulative therapy, often used in combination with acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, T'ai chi, Qi gong, cupping, and dietary therapy.  

  • It is a hands-on body treatment, and the practitioner may brush, knead, roll, press, and rub the areas between each of the joints.

  •  The techniques may be gentle or quite firm.

  • The name comes from two of the actions: tui means "to push" and na means "to lift and squeeze."

  • The practitioner will also use range of motion, traction, as well as stimulation of acupressure points.

  • These techniques can aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.
