Chapter 2: History Of Tui Na


Tui Na as one might guess correctly goes all the way back to ancient China.

The Origins

This special techniques date all the way back to the Shang Dynasty or later, approximately around 1700 BC. If you notice the inscriptions closely, on oracle bones show that massage was used help infants and adult when it came to digestive functions.

There is an author by the name of Jin Gui Yao Lue and Zhang Zhongjing, a famous physician in the Han Dynasty, they wrote: “As soon as the heavy sensation of the limbs is felt, “Daoyin”, “Tui na”, “Zhenjiu” and “Gaomo”, and these are all their popular therapeutic methods, which are carried out in order to prevent diseases from gaining a start.”

At around 700 AD, it started gaining recognition and is even included as a separate study in the Imperial Medical College.

This form of massage had many variations and it moved all the way to Korea and Japan forming their own different branches.

Only around the year of 1600 AD did it properly merge with a technique called tui na, which actually specializes in a form of bone-setting using deep manipulation to the body. Around this time more and more Tui Na systems became popular, each with having its own methodology and rules.

So how does Tui Na work?

The Ins And Outs

This form of massage is actually a hands-on practice that utilizes traditional Chinese Taoist and martial art principles to achieve equilibrium for the body.

The massage is usually performed by a trained masseur and he or she may brush, knead, roll/press and rub the areas between each of the joints in order to open up the body’s defensive chi and gets the energy moving in the meridians as well as the loosening up the muscles giving a really relaxing feel.

The person receiving the massage often lies flat on their stomach similar to most standard massages.

The masseur can then use range of hand motions and tractions deeply massaging the stimulation of acupressure points. This has been well known to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.

This is very useful for people who do weight training as it helps the muscles to loosen up and repair itself.

Tui na is also an integral part martial arts schools as these schools teach tui na to their more advanced students in order for them to perform healing treatments and administration to fix the injuries and pain. Just like most of the other traditional Chinese medical practices, there are disciplinary differences based on the teacher.

Chapter 4: Tools And How To Perform Tui Na


There aren’t many tools that are needed to perform Tui Na except that you should use a pillow for the legs (to prevent numbness or cramps if the feet are pressed down for over an hour).

What is most important is to using the arms, hands, fingers, elbows and knees as the very tools itself. Here are a few ways Tui Na is performed:

What Is Used


Pressing one’s palms and fingers is used to release deep-seated tensions in the joints and muscles. Depending on the size of the area and how tense the body is, the person who presses with a thumb, fingers, palm or elbow, leaning into your body with all of his weight is used to create a ‘deep tissue’ effect.

This method is probably the oldest and easiest of Tui Na techniques and is one of the easiest skills used – even if one has not practiced Tui Na before (try it on your loved ones!)

Chafing or Rubbing

When you rub your fingertips or the palms throughout the body, it starts producing enough heat as a result of the friction. The practitioner sometimes applies a circular rubbing motion over the skin.

This method is a very good way to prevent congested chi or blood. When it is applied to the center of the chest level, rubbing can help to reduce anxiety greatly by circulating the blood around the organs.

Kneading or Rolling

Have you ever rolled a ball of dough together? It does the same thing to the muscles at the same time too. By using the fingers or the palms, the practitioner applies a light and uniform pressure to softly rub the muscles in order to release tension. There is also a warming effect as a result of the circulation of going up and down the same spot over and over again.


In this case, the masseur plays the body like a drum. That is what percussion is all about when the tui na practitioner rapidly hits the surface tissue with like a karate chop using the hands in order to stimulate the organs in the body.

This form of ‘chopping’, when applied in certain areas of the back and rib cage will cause the pancreas and liver to be stimulated and you will feel a vibrant sensation running through your body.


This technique is also a highly favored technique when it comes to Tui Na. The masseur lifts up or holds one or more of your limbs, and then shakes it through a pattern or motion thus creating a wave that moves through your entire body.

This form of Tui Na stimulates the flow of blood to the joint and improves the circulation of Chi.
