Tuina (Chinese 推拏, 推拿, Pinyin tuīná) is an independent Chinese form of massage and one of the five main pillars of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) - together with Chinese drug therapy, acupuncture, Chinese dietetics and exercise therapies Qigong and Taijiquan.

There are also the spellings Tui-Na or Tui Na. The term is made up of the Chinese words tui ('push', 'push') and na ('grab', 'pull').

These manual techniques are used in the treatment. Tuina therapy includes Western forms of treatment such as chiropractic, acupressure, various massage techniques and manual therapy. Tuina can also be done as part of a self-treatment.
