Advanced Tui Na: The Complete Online Program for Acupuncturists

with Sarah Pritchard, Online Now

Course Information

This course, for both the beginner and advanced Acupuncturist and Tui na practitioner,  will take you on a journey back to the shamanic foundations of Chinese Medicine to the ancient massage manipulations of An Wu/An Mo that predate acupuncture. All needling techniques evolved from An Mo (press rub), known more commonly now and since the Ming dynasty as Tui na (Push grasp).

The therapeutic abilities of Tui na are broad and deep. It is both a physical bodywork (Yang and invigorating) and a subtle energy medicine (Yin and deeply nourishing). Some points and channels are better stimulated with hands and others with needles. This course will bring you the flexibility to use both in your practice, giving you the versatility and potential to flow creatively and intuitively with the changing dynamics of your patients’ Qi. And, your patients will love it!

For those new to Tui na, this course will provide a comprehensive foundation for how to apply all the fundamental techniques effectively and confidently with connection and presence. For those who already work with Tui na, the course aims to inspire you to deepen, refine and advance your skills.

The course will provide you with a clear understanding of the therapeutic qualities of the techniques and when you may choose them in practice. For example which technique would you choose to expel wind and where on the body would you apply it? How would you nourish Yin? How would you unwind what is bound and soothe and contain what is scattered?

The course aims to encourage what is innate and often under-valued – the intuition and realm of feeling. I want to enable the student and practitioner to step out of their own way, to become like water, to connect to the Dao and become the conduit that allows change to happen. The work is ever-evolving as we all evolve.
