Tui-na (pronounced "twee-nah") is an important part of traditional Chinese Medical practice. Tui-Na makes use of many different strokes that are applied to acupuncture points, meridians and muscles. Central to this approach is the manipulation of the body's subtle energy as well as the physical tissue, joints, internal organs and fluids. The problem area can be treated locally or remotely via the meridian system. For example, low back pain can be treated by massaging points on the foot and lower leg. Tui-na and the internal arts like Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong can be considered to be traditional Chinese Physical Therapy.
