Tui Na or Tuina (Chinese: 推拿) is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, fire cupping, Chinese herbalism, t'ai chi, and qigong.
It is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese Taoist and martial art principles in an attempt to bring into balance the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Tui Na is an integral part of TCM and is taught in TCM schools as part of formal training in Oriental medicine.
The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints (known as the eight gates) to open the body's defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in the meridians as well as the muscles. The practitioner can then use motion, traction and massage with the stimulation of acupressure points to treat both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.
