“Tui Na (pronounced “
tway-na”) is one of the three pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine practiced in hospitals all over the world. It is based on the same theories and foundations of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine which work to bring the human body into greater health and balance.
Tui Na literally translates as “push and grasp,” and is a sophisticated style of medical massage used to treat injuries, joint and muscle problems and internal disorders. It was officially recognized by the
Chinese government in 1949 for its benefits and results and is an important
component of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Tui Na promotes and re-establishes health, and it restores injured tissues. Some treatment protocols require major Tui Na focus to attack the root of the pain, move blood stasis, and fight off disease. Tui Na practitioners seek to treat beyond producing just a relaxed result.”
