Tui Na is a form of Oriental bodywork that has been used in China for centuries. A combination of massage, acupressure and other forms of body manipulation, Tui Na works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians and groups of muscles or nerves to remove blockages that prevent the free flow of Qi. Removing these blockages restores the balance of Qi in the body, leading to improved health and vitality.
In a typical Tui Na session, the client remains clothed but wears loose clothing, and sits on a massage chair or table. The practitioner will ask the patient a series of questions, and then begin treatment based on the answers to those questions. Tui Na practitioners may employ a variety of methods to achieve their goal. Commonly used techniques include soft tissue massage, acupressure and manipulation. Practitioners may sometimes use herbal compresses, liniments, ointments and heat to enhance these techniques.
