This Course is For Beginners and Experienced Practitioners

No special educational background or experience is required. Upon completion of the course, students will have the practical skills required to safely and effectively administer basic Tui Na massage treatments and will have a strong foundation for further study.


For centuries, Tui Na has been one of the most important healing therapies in China.  Today, Tui Na is gaining wide spread popularity in the United States for its invigorating and natural way of restoring and maintaining good health.

Tui Na uses the traditional  Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi (energy) through the meridians as its basic therapeutic orientation. By employing associated massage and manipulation techniques, Tui Na seeks to establish a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system of channels and collaterals, allowing the body to heal itself naturally.

Tui Na treatments help with illness prevention, promote well being, decrease stress and relieve pain and aches.  In addition, Tui Na massage promotes anti aging, tunes up organs, balances body energy and emotion, enhances immunity, maintains healthy metabolism, and enhances the quality life.

Student Feedback
"I took your Tui Na course back in April and I wanted to write and tell you the impact you have had on my life. Since our 5 days of work together, I have been asked by both my university massage therapy and acupuncture programs to return and instruct with them.  With the acupuncture program I have specifically been asked to teach a course regarding the importance of bodywork with TCM.  My passion has returned, and I cannot thank you enough for lighting my fire again."

"As I practiced the work that you taught me, my confidence in my abilities and my passion for my work returned.  Not only was I helping more people through this bodywork, but I was healing myself and transforming.  In allowing me to somewhat help out with showing the other students in your class the skill and mastery behind this technique, you opened up my love of knowledge and importing that into those around me.  This confidence and skill allowed me a new inner power."

- Adam S. from Canada
"This course was terrific. I started out feeling very insecure and ended with a ton of confidence. Great teaching method – extremely knowledgeable, fun – I thoroughly enjoyed it. These five days felt more like a retreat. Incorporating Qi Gong was a delightful bonus. Thank you for getting my Qi flowing!:
------Maria C.

"Both relaxing and stimulating. I feel looser (physically) and more open (mentally) than I have for a while – a long time. My fellow students were awesome!!:
------Tina L.
"Excellent course! So glad I came!  Dr Kuhn's tone, organization and experience level told me that I had come to the source for Tui Na instruction, and feel strongly that I have learned in 5 days what other courses cover in several months.  I really appreciate Dr. Kuhn’s ability to strike a tone of professionalism and intensity of focus while remaining light hearted and fun. Thanks so much."  

-- Candy N, from California
"The program was well laid out and a great pace to absorb the anatomy and philosophy while providing enough hands on experience to begin practicing with confidence. Dr. Kuhn really puts her heart into everything she does and is a wealth of knowledge and perspective. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, gift, and tea!"

-- Mark S
