With Chinese medicine being used for over 2,100 years, there’s no wonder it’s being used more and more in medical treatments. It’s a system of medicine at least 23 centuries old that aims to prevent or heal disease by maintaining or restoring yin yang balance. This is why we feel strongly about teaching our students the importance of integrative medicine and how we can easily incorporate it into the modern world.

Tui Na is one of the oldest of the four branches of TCM that we teach here at VUIM. It is used to treat a range of illnesses and conditions. It is underpinned by the same theoretical framework as the other branches of TCM and thus utilises the same stringent diagnostic process. Its application is undertaken via the meridian system, the acupuncture points, organs as well as the body tissues. Although its techniques are frequently more vigorous than other more sensual schools of massage, the patient invariably encounters a sense of wellbeing and relaxation thereafter.
