Vet Message Therapy for Horses, Dogs and Cats

Tui na is one of Traditional Chinese Medicines physical/orthopedic therapies. It is a very old discipline, and earliest references made in the Huangdi Neijing Suwen (Yellow Emperors Classic of internal Medicine) date back as far as 2700 years, at which time according to the Neijing, Tui Na originated in the Hunan province of China.

Tui na is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, and Chinese herbalism. The words Tui Na translate into "push-grasp" or "poke-pinch" in Chinese. Tui na is a hands-on-body treatment using acupressure that is a modality of Chinese medicine whose purpose is to bring the body into balance. Physically the practitioner may use a series of pressing, tapping, and kneading with palms, fingertips, knuckles or implements that help the body to remove blockages along the meridians of the body and stimulates the flow of qi and blood to promote healing, similar to principles of acupuncture, moxibustion, and acupressure. The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points and to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions. Tui na is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is taught in TCM schools as part of formal training in Oriental medicine.
