Tui Na Massage | Accredited Diploma Course

One day professional Tui Na Massage course is specifically designed for the general well-being of the physical, emotional and spiritual body in order to keep the body balanced and in harmony.

These massage techniques can be done over clothing or on skin or as part of an existing therapy routine to assist the therapist and client.  This massage can be carried out in almost any setting or at any event, for a variety of treatment lengths.

Tui na uses Chinese Taoist principles to bring the body in to balance. The name comes from two of the movement’s uses, tui which means to push and na which means to lift and squeeze.

This course is very popular with massage therapists looking to add to their knowledge.

Tui Na not only focuses on balancing the body but also the mind. This massage is deeply relaxing and can also be rejuvenating.

About our Tui Na Massage Course

This course is designed for qualified therapists who wish to add to their repertoire.

Tui Na is one of the Chinese healing arts of deep massage and manipulation for well being.

This is a one day course to learn Tui Na Massage techniques which can be used on their own in a sequence, working on any area of the body and can be performed lying down or seated.

These massage movements and techniques can be adapted to suit your client, as they stimulate Chi and blood supply to assist in the body’s own healing processes. The massage is practised over clothes but can also be performed on the skin with oil.

There are many movements that the therapist will use including: pushing, brushing, kneading, rolling, pressing, rubbing and lifting. These movements are specifically used to attempt to open the body’s defensive chi and get the energy moving in the meridians and muscles.

Certificate - Insurance - Brands

Why is our course so popular?

This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.

Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.

This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!
