Tui na: The Chinese Massage Manual is a comprehensive and well established handbook for students and practitioners of Tui na in the West.

The author describes the roots and development of Tui na, how it works therapeutically with the context of Chinse medicine, and how to become an effective Tui na practitioner.

The book contains detailed and clearly illustrated descriptions of Tui na techniques, how to practice them, their clinical applications and therapeutic effects. Foundation area routines are provided to support the development and fluidity of manual skills and to give an initial structure for building treatments.

The book has a unique approach to creating and planning Tui na treatments. Avoiding the prescriptive approach usually employed, the author discusses the principles of practice and enables the student practitioner to make choices and formulate treatments by bringing together their knowledge and skills. Frameworks are provided, and techniques, methods and approaches suggested for presenting patterns of disharmony within the treatment of common ailments.
