About Tuina Student to Master
The making of Tui Na Student to Master has taken many years. It began with me learning the massage in Hang Zhou, Zhe jiang, China where I searched for top Doctors from whom I could learn, my sincere thanks goes to many of the doctors for their patience including: Dr Jiang, Dr Mao, Dr Ni, Dr Wu, Dr Li, Dr ye, Dr Huang, Dr Sun and professor Fan. These are just some of the Doctors who gave their time and knowledge unselfishly.
Tui Na Student to Master demonstrates many of the hand techniques and massage routines used for Tui Na massage for example Gun fa, Ban fa, Tui fa, Yi qi chan, Rou fa, Yao fa, Ba shen fa. Mo fa, Dou fa.
The DVD features Doctors from China and practitioners from England demonstrating Tui Na massage. The harder techniques to perform are covered in more detail on the DVD, allowing you more time to practice whilst following the techniques on screen.
To reduce the carbon foot print the DVD was put on a single dual layer disk, rather than a DVD box set. There is more than 120mins of useful information, equipping you with the knowledge and confidence to work with the following internal and external disorders.
Tuina is Chinese medical massage. It focuses upon the use of a variety of hand techniques to relieve pain, regulate the flow of blood and Qi through the body and restore functional anatomy. Tuina is considered as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in the same way as acupuncture and herbal medicine.
The hand techniques utilises a variety of principles in their application to specific disorders. They can be divided into several categories of therapeutic effect. These categories include oscillating methods, pressure methods, passive joint movement.
Oscillating methods rely on the development of a wave pattern through repetitive movement. This movement generates a rhythmic wave pattern that penetrates deeply into the body and activates the circulation of blood and Qi. This wave also affects the nervous system. Pressure is a secondary aspect of this principle.
Pressure techniques rely on the use of force to deepen its effects on perpendicular pressure, an alternating pressure and release or a moving pressure. These techniques are used to facilitate the removal of obstruction, relieve blood and Qi stagnation and harmonize the flow of Qi and blood.
Passive joint movement features the use of range of motion to help restore functional anatomy. It also helps relieve blood and Qi stagnation.
The aims of the tuina massage are to disperse, tonify, activate, harmonize and warm the Qi and blood to bring about the bodyís natural healing process. These aims are achieved by varying the speed, pressure and duration of a Tuina treatment. To use specific hand techniques will produces more pronounced effects. It is the development of the practitionerís ability to control his or her body, breath and hands that separates the student from the master. While they will often appear similar in execution, the masterís techniques will be profoundly more effective due to the control and development of the body, breath, hands and stances. This is a process that is accomplished through determination, practice, endurance, insight and the help of senior Doctors of TCM.
