What is Tui Na?
Tui Na is traditional Chinese clinical bodywork. It is a 2,000-year-old Chinese manipulative therapy that uses a hands-on approach to access acupuncture and acupressure points. Tui Na stimulates the movement of energy (Qi) in both the meridians and muscles. It is an excellent modality to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal and joint conditions, as well as certain internal disorders.
Tui Na was often classified as an "external" treatment in ancient China. This less invasive modality has proven through the years to be especially effective for the elderly, infants, and gravely ill patients, but is certainly not limited to these types. Tui Na is an excellent massage therapy for physical trauma, and rehabilitation, sports injuries and chronic pain, as well as disorders of the digestive, respiratory and reproductive system.
What is Chi Nei Tsang?
Chi Nei Tsang is a Taoist healing technique that detoxifies, regenerates and balances each one of your body’s vital functions. It is a system of healing that focuses on the internal organs, as well as the circulation, lymphatic system, digestive, eliminative, nerve centers of the body, tendon muscle system and the acupuncture meridians (Chi system). These systems concentrate and cross paths in the abdomen, which acts as their control center.
Chi Nei Tsang uses energetic techniques and manipulations to untangle knots and release obstructions. This system of health rejuvenation and maintenance is so complete that it also includes working on balancing the mind, the emotions and the essential energy of Chi (Qi). It can complement and enhance almost all other healing techniques.
Chi Nei Tsang will help you enhance your vitality and overall health from the inside out. Chi Nei Tsang was brought to America by Master Mantak Chia.
