    Tui Na - Level 1, The Original Chinese Meridian Massage - Equine & Small Anima

    Instructor: Amy Snow, Co-Founder, Tallgrass Animal Acupressure

    Course Level: Elective

    Certificate : A Certificate of Completion for 24 LUs is available after successful completion of the final examination, 14.5 NCAAOM PDA's available.

    Prerequisites: The prerequisites for this course are successful completion of the Tallgrass online classes, Overview of TCM and Meridian Theory.

    Remarkable modality to add to your skills! All massage is based on the original Chinese Meridian Massage called Tui Na, pronounced "Tway Nah." It is a form of body work and manipulation that has a long history in Chinese medicine. Practitioners since 2700 B.C. have used these techniques in working with acupoints and meridians along with limb stretching and manipulation to prevent and treat disease. As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and as an adjunct to veterinary therapy, Tui Na facilitates and dramatically improves the therapeutic results of acupressure for animals while contributing to their health and well-being.

    Tui Na regulates meridians, promotes circulation of chi and blood, and strengthens the immune system. These techniques can be applied in musculoskeletal conditions, arthritis, peripheral nerve disorders, wei syndrome (wasting and weakness), and improves the functions of the zang-fu, or internal organs. This course covers the basic hand and body techniques and their application for animals. Some of these techniques include Gun Fa (rolling), Yi Zhi Chan Tui Fa (finger pushing), Tui Fa (pushing), Rou Fa (kneading), An Fa (pressing), Ya Fa (compressing), Na Fa (grasping), and more.

  • Body and Gait Mechanics for PetMassage™ Practitioners Workshop

    November 7, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    PetMassage Training & Research Institute, 2950 Douglas Rd, Toledo, OH 43606, USA

    Body and Gait Mechanics for PetMassage™ Practitioners Workshop

    4 Hour on-site workshop.

    The Body Mechanics workshop will help you transform the way you move. When you move more comfortably you will interact with dogs with increased balance, stability and confidence.

    Our dogs are very aware of how we are feeling. Any limp, slouch, and imbalance in your gait signals them that you are not completely available for them. When you move in balance and ease, you feel more alive. Moreover, your dog will be relieved to know that you are well and happy. The dogs will entrain with your improved posture, gait and breathing.

    New concepts in neural- and vestibular brain science will get your body moving in grace and comfort.

    • Identify where your balance and gait may need some modifications  
    • Learn science-based drills to get “back in balance.”  

    Note: This workshop is held on a Thursday, the first day of each Foundation Level Workshop.

    Fee: When taken on its own, this workshop is $99.
