Tui Na & Qi Gong (Core) CEU Seminar at Acupuncture and Massage College in Miami, Florida
Qi Gong is a holistic system of body postures, movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health. The practice involves moving meditation, coordinating movement, rhythmic breathing, and keeping a meditative state of mind.
Tui Na, meaning "to push" and "to lift and squeeze" is a traditional form of Chinese massage that is often used in conjunction with acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities. Practice includes brushing, kneading, rolling, pressing, and rubbing the areas between each of the joints, known as the eight gates.
Tui Na massage has been shown to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.
