Tui Na (Chinese Remedial Massage)

Tui Na (Chinese Remedial Massage)

Tui Na is also referred to as Chinese medical massage or meridian massage. It differs to other forms of massage as it is used to treat specific, internal states of imbalance in the body, as well as the Musculo-skeletal system.
Tui Na is one of the branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine and requires a thorough understanding of these principles in order to make a diagnosis and provide treatment. Tui Na works with pressure and movement on the meridians, or energy pathways in the body, to promote the flow and balance of the intrinsic energy, Qi.
The blockage and stagnation of Qi can result in pain and inflammation in the body. The functional massage techniques of Tui Na alleviate the stagnation and assist to restore the flow of Qi and natural blood flow, to support the body in releasing inflammation and return to good health.
I am currently completing a Diploma of Health Science in Tui Na at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
