General Tui-Na info
The ancient science of Chinese Tui-Na medicine revolves around the application of the physicianís hands to diagnose through palpation and heal diseases and illnesses with a lot of manual techniques. The Tui-Na physician will then tailor-make a treatment protocol to each person regarding the specifics of their particular situation to effect a cure. These treatments are made without the use of devices or drugs, relying solely on the physicianís hands directly treating the patientís body. A well trained Tui-Na physician will also be fast to utilize modern medical resources when present, gladly taking a patientís MRI, X-ray, biopsy, or other test results into consideration. While the average person may only conceive of such treatment methods as useful for external or orthopedic disorders, the reality is quite different.

Tui-Na vs. Other manual treatment methods
Tui-Na is also not similar to massage or chiropractic in technique and theory. On a theoretical level, Tui-Na applies traditional Chinese medical theory as a basis for treatment. Concepts of chi (chíi, Qi, or ki) energy, blood, yin & yang, and essence play pivotal roles. On a technical level, Tui-Na is far more versified and encompassing than either massage or chiropractic medicine. Massage, by and large, does not treat diseases, but rather relaxes muscle tension and increases local circulation to relieve discomfort. However, most massage systems lack the kind of comprehensive scope that Tui-Na is known for. Most massage is also unable to effectively treat disturbances in bone alignment. Chiropractic, on the other hand, while it may reliably lowers misalignments in bony structures, generally does not spend adequate time treating the muscles surrounding the bony structures before and after re-alignment. The result from this is that many people complain of a rebound effect following treatments. Tui-Na, however, treats the muscular tension surrounding bony structures in such a way as to minimize the rebound effect immediately following treatments.
