:: Pediatric Tui Na ::
Pediatric Tui Na, also known as Chinese Pediatric Massage, influences a child’s energetic flow in the same way as acupuncture, but uses gentle massage to activate the various points instead of needles. Techniques are designed to boost the function of the internal organs by balancing their intrinsic energies, strengthening the immune system, and promoting brain development.
Unlike Western infant massage, Chinese infant massage uses specific treatments for different ailments. It is a safe and extremely effective therapy for the treatment of a wide range of common childhood ailments. Pediatric Tui Na uses a system of points and pathways that often do not correspond with the adult ones, but rather are specific to young children.
Results are often quick and without side effects. Treatments are most effective with children from birth to age 6.
Pediatric Tui Na is powerful medicine for treating colds, coughs, earache, allergies, asthma, colic, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, fever, indigestion, and stomachache, and generally assists in bolstering a weakened immune system.
After the treatment, the parent will be instructed on specific techniques to use at home to assist in restoring balance to the child.
Group and individual classes also offered.
