Tui Na (pronounced twee-nah) originated in ancient China and is one of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, qi gong and Chinese herbal medicine.
Tui Na uses rhythmic compression along energy channels of the body, as well as a variety of techniques that manipulate and lubricate the joints. Like acupressure, Tui Na directly affects the flow of energy by holding and pressing the body at acupressure points.
Tui Na does not simply work on the muscles, bones and joints. It works with the energy of the body at a deeper level. As the practitioner senses the client’s body with her hands, she is able to assess the distribution of energy and affect its flow.
As with other styles of Asian bodywork, Tui Na is designed to prevent problems, not just correct them. By keeping the body’s energy in balance, health is maintained. This is true not just for physical health, but for mental and emotional well-being as well.

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities and promotes physical and emotional well-being.
TRADITIONAL FIRE CUPPING

An ancient therapy that consists of having round glass or plastic suction cups that are warmed, then placed on sore parts of the body. The placement of the cup creates a partial vacuum, which stimulates muscles and blood flow while relieving pain.
