Tui Na is a form of Chinese Manipulative Therapy which has been used over 2,000 year. Tui Na is primarily used to treat musculoskeletal disorders, but can also be performed to relieve chronic stress-related disorders of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.

The words Tui Na translate into “push-grasp” or “poke-pinch” in Chinese. The practitioner may tap, knead, roll/press and rub to stimulate the body to remove blockages along its meridians and stimulate the flow of Qi and blood. Similar to principles of acupuncture and acupressure, this increased circulation promotes healing of tissues.
