AcupressureChinese bodywork therapy dates back to the Shang Dynasty of China (1700 BC), and is used to treat a variety of trauma and chronic disorders. In China, pediatric Tui Na is highly popular and effective in treating children's diseases.

This form of therapy uses the traditional Chinese medical theory of the flow of Qi through the meridians as its basic therapeutic orientation. Through the application of massage and manipulation techniques, a more harmonious flow of Qi through the system of channels and collaterals is sought, allowing the body to heal itself naturally. Various hand techniques are used to massage the soft tissue (muscles and tendons) of the body, and to realign the musculoskeletal and ligamentous relationships; acupressure techniques are used to directly affect the flow of Qi. External herbal patches, compresses, linaments, and salves are used in addition to enhance the therapeutic effect of the hand techniques.
