This course is designed to provide the practitioner with the practical knowledge and skill to administer Tui Na therapy as an independent and complete treatment modality. This course is divided into three modules: the back; the neck and upper limbs; and the back and lower limbs. While together these three parts serve as integrated regulatory treatment for the whole body, they can also be used independently. Performing the full-body sequence enables the practitioner to learn both fundamental and advanced hand techniques in the context of an actual treatment.
For those familiar with the Zheng Gu Tui Na system, this course is an evolution of material from that program. The seven courses have been re-designed into three modules that cover both fundamental and advanced techniques, reflecting the natural diagnostic and therapeutic progression that would unfold in clinical practice.
Module 1: February 9-10, 2019
The key element in this sequence is what we refer to as the Back Protocol, which ties together the three parts of the full-body sequence. Fundamental and advanced techniques will be presented alongside discussions of anatomy and body mechanics to deepen the practitioner’s understanding of treatment and strategy. More in-depth explanations of the treatment of the upper and lower limbs will be presented in Modules 2 and 3.
Module 2: May 18-19, 2019
This course introduces Advanced Tui Na techniques for mobilization of the Neck and Upper Limb. Building on the concepts and techniques introduced in the previous Module 1, various hand techniques are combined to create an integrated approach to joint and limb structural and channel alignment. Participants will learn effective treatment protocols and strategies, as well as best-use practices and contraindications.
Module 3: September 14th-15th, 2019
This course introduces Advanced Tui Na techniques for mobilization of the Back and Lower Limb. Building on the concepts and techniques introduced in the previous Modules 1 and 2, various hand techniques are combined to create an integrated approach to joint and limb structural channel alignment. Participants will learn effective treatment protocols and strategies, as well as best-use practices and contraindications.
