It is currently practised extensively in China, and has been for 4,000 years. It is effective in maintaining good health and treating a huge variety of pathological conditions.

Tui Na Chinese Medical massage is a way to start easing peoples pain by applying a therapeutic touch to acupoints – the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Knowledge of acupuncture points is essential for Tui Na and is essential for those who want to study acupuncture (which is what you may wish to do after mastering Tui Na).

The career-minded Chinese massage course

The only real barrier between you and a successful massage career is having an effective means of making people feel better. If you achieve that, you’re in business – fail and you’ll be seeking another career path.

The Bodyharmonics Tui Na Course is structured to get you practising under the close supervision of an expert and teaches you massage therapies aimed specifically at a successful career outcome.
Chinese massage provides uniquely powerful techniques using acupuncture points to ease the pain. Tui Na can control pain without the use of drugs which makes it more and more in demand.

“The tutors are also practitioners with up-to-date practical experience of the techniques and their relative merits, not just trainers with largely theoretical knowledge and no recent experience. They installed confidence in the techniques and could provide practical advice for specific treatments/complaints. There was a friendly atmosphere- it felt like joining a family rather than attending a course. Supportive comprehensive notes were provided with good training facilities”.
