TuiNa is the original Chinese Bodywork Therapy that has been used for over 2,500 years. It is a sophisticated system of holistic therapy based upon the traditional Chinese medical theory of balancing Yin and Yang and the promotion and control principles of the five phases (WuXing) theory.

TuiNa is often carried out as a whole body therapy, it is designed to stretch and relax tissue and aid the balanced circulation of blood and energy around the body. TuiNa is the forerunner of Japanese Shiatsu and Thai Massage, predating both by many centuries. You can read a little more about Tui Na here:

Somatic Education is the final building block in the process of DSI. Learning to take note of how you move and taking control of how you move is key to achieving long lasting change.
