An Introduction to
Tui Na Massage Therapy

 

The technique of Tui Na or Vibration Therapy stimulates the flow of qi energy and blood to promote healing.  

The words Tui Na translate into "push-grasp" or "poke-pinch" in Chinese. Physically, it is a series of pressing, tapping, and kneading with palms, fingertips, knuckles or implements that help the body to remove blockages along the meridians of the body, and establish a more harmonious Qi energy through the system of channels and collaterals, allowing the body to naturally heal itself.

Tui na's massage-like techniques range from light stroking to deep-tissue work which would be considered too vigorous or too painful for a recreational or relaxing massage.
