Tui Na is an independent branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, using the same diagnostic method as Acupuncture and Herbal medicine. It works with a particular set of channels lying at the surface of the body, known as the Sinew Channels. These channels are conduits of the body’s defensive energy that passes through the skeletal muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and smooth muscles of the Heart, Intestines, Uterus, Bladder, Stomach and Blood vessels. Tui Na works to correct the flow of energy through these channels, aiming to address pain or dysfunction along their trajectories.
Tui Na will not be covered by Private Health Insurance at this time.
