Tui Na, which translates as "push-grasp" in Chinese, refers to the modality of Chinese medical bodywork. Tui Na employs a series of hand techniques to remove blockages along the body’s meridians. Acupressure, or the stimulation of acupuncture points without needles, is one part of Tui Na. Practitioners often use herbal liniments, plasters, or compresses to aid in the healing process. When correctly applied, the techniques of Tui Na are effective at treating a wide variety of ailments, including orthopedic problems, sports injuries, muscular tension, and internal disease. While Tui Na may be used alone, it is often incorporated with other modalities of Chinese medicine.
