A Chinese type of massage therapy--Tui Na

Updated: Apr 1, 2023

Tui Na is a type of therapy based on TCM theories of Zang-Fu organs and meridians, but it also combines the anatomy and pathological diagnosis from Western medicine. Like acupuncture, tui na involves the stimulation of specific points of the body that reach meridians. The main difference is that acupuncture uses needling techniques, whereas tui na uses Chinese massage and manipulation techniques. Some common techniques include: gliding, kneading, rolling, pressing, pulling, chopping, and vibrating.

Each session lasts between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the patient’s necessity. Tui na helps promote the blood circulation of the body, and enhances the qi blood supply. Tui na is used to treat a variety of pain, musculoskeletal syndromes, and digestive, respiratory and reproductive system disorders. Some common contraindications include: skin infection or epidemic disease.
