The belief that body energy must continuously flow to prevent stress and disease is a central tenet of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The meridian system (inner energy points and pathways) encourages the flow of “qi” (body energy) and blood throughout the body. Traditional Chinese philosophies understand qi (气) as an energy that not only animates our bodies, but the world around us. However you choose to interpret this way of thinking, the benefits of its application are clear to many.
By clearing energy pathways called “jing luo” (经络) and removing blockages that cause pain and disease, qi can be balanced. Chinese Tuina (推拿) massage practitioners identify pathways with limited flow and use hand pressure to restore harmony and energy circulation.
This seminar aims to introduce the therapeutic benefits of Tuina massage and explain how it helps balance our health holistically. A number of simple acupoints will also be introduced and demonstrated so as to teach you how to relieve neck and shoulder pain using Chinese Tuina massage.
