Xiao Er Tui Na Massage | Pediatrics

Pediatric Tui Na Massage (also called Chinese remedial infant and child massage) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapy to stimulate certain acupuncture points or areas to treat or prevent pediatric diseases in children. It’s also aimed at helping to stimulate children’s growth and brain development and strengthening the child’s immune system.

The treatment is based on regular Tuina Massage and is usually a combination of Tui Na, acupressure and other forms of body manipulation, applying pressure to acupoints, meridians and groups of muscles or nerves to remove blockages and stimulate the free flow of Qi Energy and blood.

Health benefits include alleviating or curing diarrhea, colic, vomiting, constipation, cough, stomach aches, bad appetite, flu, nearsightedness, excessive drooling, bed-wetting, night crying, and colds.

A Xiao Er Tui treatment is suitable for children under six years old and a session takes usually between twenty and thirty minutes, depending on the techniques used, the child’s age, physical body condition and type of illness.
