Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture and Tui Na

Traditional styles of acupuncture utilise an understanding of health and illness that has developed for over 2,000 years. This theoretical knowledge guides the diagnosis and the selection of acupuncture points.

Training as a traditional acupuncturist combines the art of diagnosis with the skill of practice. Developing both is the work of a lifetime. In traditional theory, ‘qi’ is a term used to describe body processes and functions.

Acupuncture regulates the flow of qi within the body by inserting fine needles into specific points on ‘meridian’ pathways on the skin. Other techniques can also be used, such as moxibustion and cupping. Dietary recommendations or specific exercises such as tai ji quan and qi gong may also be recommended alongside treatment. In traditional acupuncture there is no mind-body split. In other words, the physical, emotional and mental aspect of life are seen as interdependent. The traditional practice of acupuncture involves more than the insertion of needles.

Tui Na massage is an ancient and sophisticated form of medical massage which works on the same principles as acupuncture. Tui Na differs from other forms of massage as it is used to treat specific illnesses and conditions as well as musculoskeletal problems.
