What is Tui Na?
Tui Na is the traditional form of orthopedic bodywork that has been practiced in China for thousands of years. It is still practiced to this day in Chinese hospitals in the same way Chiropractic and Massage Therapy are used in the West to treat physical injuries. Tui Na is a safe, versatile, and powerful system of healing that has recently seen a resurgence in popularity as people seek safer alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs and surgery to treat injuries and disease.
In addition to providing physical massage and joint mobilizations, Tui Na therapy uses prescriptive postures and movement sets ("Qi Gong") to rehabilitate the body. When practiced in conjunction with bodywork treatments, these exercises help break negative physiological habits and restore balance to the entire mind/body system.
