They include: An Fa (direct pressure), Gun Fa, (rolling knuckles), Na Fa (plucking), Tui Fa (pushing), and 5 more Tui Na hand techniques.

Tui Na regulates meridians, promotes circulation of chi and blood, and strengthens the immune system.

Course covers the basic hand and body techniques and their application for animals.
