Tui Na massage refers to the treatment of massaging the the meridians and acupuncture points on the body. Tui Na treatment is an ancient Chinese method of healing injuries and is an integral part of Chinese medicine.

Tui Na is a way for doctors to use their hands to exert different strengths and skills on the patient's body to stimulate certain parts to restore or improve the vitality of the body and promote the recovery of the disease. It is a method of "treating people by people" and belongs to one of the natural remedies that are now advocated. Because of its simple method and no side effects plus the treatment effect is good, so it has been continuously developed, enriched and improved in China for thousands of years. Especially in the past forty years, due to the study of traditional Chinese medicine by Western medicine, the establishment of Chinese medicine colleges has played a huge role in the development and improvement of Chinese medicine. This shows that China's massage manipulation has been paid attention to by the world.

The benefits of the Tui Na massage are as followed but not limited to:

According to the article written in Ming Dynasty "Wan Shouxian": "The Tui Na massage can enhance the "Qi" (energy) in the body and resulting facial glow.". Because the massage method of Tui Na is to work on the the meridians, focus on the acupuncture points, by doing that, the qi and the blood will be enhanced thus the health of the body can be regained or maintained. Modern medicine believes that the stimulation of Tui Na techniques can increase the temperature of local tissue which promote capillary expansion, improve blood and lymph circulation, reduce blood viscosity, reduce peripheral vascular resistance, thus it can reduce the burden on the heart, so it can prevent cardiovascular diseases.

For instance, the symptoms of pediatric dysentery are relieved or disappeared when Tui Na is applied. The researches show that the Tui Na has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and immune-enhancing effects, which can enhance the body's disease resistance. It is also because the Tui Na can dredge the meridians. It keeps the blood flowing and maintains the balance of yin and yang of the body.
