Tuina therapy is an energy body work which applies the Oriental medicine principle to promote the body’s energy network. Whoever seeking for a Tuina training please pay attention to the following suggestions concluded with our 15 years experiences:

1. Hands-on instruction by an experienced instructor is very important. You cannot learn tuina through reading textbooks. Practicing is the only way.

2. Energy exercise to build up strength and quality of treatment is the key. Make sure you can do one-hour session easily and be able to work the whole day.

3. The common theory of Chinese medicine and acupuncture is not the same principle applied with tuina, actually, anatomy knowledge with clinical and exercise experiences work better. You need to understand the body in motion and affected by symptoms.

4. A case study with clinical practice will make this therapy useful.

5. Stretch hands and arms every day, preventing injury from incorrect practice.
