What is Child Tuina?
The massage techniques involves using gentle strokes with the hands, on pressure points, mainly on child's face, hands, abdomen and back. It is suitable for children up to 12 years old.
It helps to regulate the functions of the organs, strengthen the immunity and promote healthy growth of the child.
No medicines, no injections. It is a non-invasive and effective method of treating and preventing paediatric diseases in children and therefore, children can more easily accept treatment in the form of paediatric tuina.
The body constitution of children is delicate as their organs are still developing, making them vulnerable to falling sick. The Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective holds that young children are most susceptible to conditions like cough, asthma, allergies, colic and indigestion that affect the lung, spleen and kidney.
Treats Common Ailments
Common diseases treated include fever, frequent coughs and colds, poor appetite, diarrhoea or constipation, abdominal pain, sleep disturbances (such as night terrors) and bed wetting.
Paediatric Tuina stimulates specific acupuncture areas for treating and preventing pediatric diseases in children. It also helps to stimulate growth and brain development in children.
