Qigong meets Tuina

Cost: £63.00

Venue: Samye Ling

Qigong has a history of more than two thousand years with its roots deep in ancient Chinese culture.

In ancient times it was known by many other names such as: Daoyin, Xingqi, Liandan, Xuangong and many other designations that are usually depicted as a system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and visualisation and focus used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training.

Tui Na or Tuina is a form of massage that literally means "pushing (and) grasping", pronounced as “Twee Nah”. The earliest descriptions of Tuina are found in the Yellow Emperor's Inner Classic of Medicine dating back more than 5000 years ago.

This course explores the management of basic musculoskeletal ailments employing the disciplines of Qigong exercise and Tuina.

Bookings for this course will open from the 1st February 2024, when you will be able to book your place on the course and also guest accommodation by sending an email to bookings@samyeling.org
