Tui Na

Tuina (Chinese: 推拏; 推拿; Pinyin: tūiná), is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbalism and qigong.

Tuina uses traction, massage and manipulation in conjunction with the stimulation of acupressure points and is used for both acute or chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as certain non-musculoskeletal conditions. It is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. Tuina is taught in acupuncture schools as part of formal training in Oriental medicine. Also, many East Asian martial arts schools teach tuina to their advanced students for personal and professional use.
