I recently completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Tui Na at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.
Tui Na is a hands on massage therapy which uses the same meridians and channels as acupuncture. It is a powerful accessory to treatment, but can be used on its own, especially if you don’t like needles!
Each Tui Na practitioner works in different ways. Some use brisk and rapid techniques (yang style) and others use slower gentle (yin) styles.
I enjoy using Tui Na to complement my acupuncture treatments. Clients find tui na very relaxing and particularly enjoy having their face included in the treatment.
