Course Summary

Qualified Acupuncturists and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners can typically complete the CCA Tui Na course in just one year. If you are eligible to complete the one year Licentiate in Tui Na, you will only need to attend CCA for one day per week to complete the two Tui Na Modules. Our One Year Licentiate in Tui Na course is taught and assessed at level five. Your Lic.Tui Na will be awarded by CCA.


If you are studying at, or have qualified from, a BAAB accredited college it will be assumed that your knowledge of TCM is enough to undertake training in Tui na.

If you are studying at, or have qualified from, a non-BAAB accredited college you may be required to undergo a process known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). During RPL it may be necessary to assess your depth of TCM understanding, as we are unable to accept students on to the course who have not studied TCM in sufficient depth.


This unit puts theory and practice together creatively to use a range of Tui na techniques to look at complex disease patterns in Chinese medicine. It applies existing theoretical knowledge, reflective practice and practical skills acquired throughout the program in the context of supervised clinical practice with patients.
