Classical Tui Na: Essential Protocols and Principles is the single most important class in the entire Zheng Gu Tui Na curriculum. Literally the “Master Key” to the Classical Tui Na System, it opens the doors to all the other methods we teach.
These principles and protocols form the basis of treatments Tom Bisio and Frank Butler have successfully used in their clinics for over 20 years.
Protocols learned in this class will improve your clinical effectiveness – in all areas.
In Classical Tui Na: Essential Protocols and Principles students learn a full-body Tui Na protocol that is the foundation of all other Tui Na techniques. The full-body approach develops an integrated approach to diagnosis and treatment, which inculcates – from the very beginning – correct clinical procedures, while simultaneously teaching hand techniques, proper body mechanics, and the foundation for a wide variety of treatments.
The “back protocol” which forms the core of this class is a unique method of regulating the Spine and the Du (or “Governing” Vessel), which connects to the brain and spinal cord, and globally regulates and controls countless body functions.
Many students have studied Tui Na and medical massage before. Hence some write us to inquire about “skipping” what appears to be a “basic” foundational level class. Nothing could be farther from reality! Essential Protocols and Principles is NOT a basic class. It is, once again, the most important class we teach.
For all of these reasons, Classical Tui Na: Essential Protocols and Principles is the nexus and entry point to the various courses of study that we offer.
If you can take only one of our classes, take this one!
