Tui Na is an
ancient form of Chinese physical therapy, some 2000
years old. "Tui Na" combines the names of two of the
hand techniques, "Tui" meaning "to push" and "Na"
meaning "to lift and squeeze." In these hands-on
classes, you will learn the history and potential
benefits of therapeutic bodywork in general, and Tui Na
in particular. After a demonstration of six first-aid
points (for nausea, stress, and more) to use on
themselves and others, attendees will learn to apply the
treatments correctly. Students will also learn how to
give a one-hour relaxation session to healthy friends
and family. Handouts will be provided, and there will be
ample time for questions.
Class size is
limited and students are advised to bring a pillow and
comforter to the class. Call (603) 524-5712 for more
