Children and Tui Na Chinese Therapeutic Massage

Paediatric tui na is widely used in today in Chinese hospitals. It is different from adult tui na because a child’s energetic system differs.

   terrible ear infection,
   with some gentle
   massage on points
   on his hands and
   feet he visibly
   improved right
   before my eyes"

A tui na treatment for a child is generally a sequence of 8-12 gentle massage methods, mainly pushing and kneading, on lines or points.

Each method is done for 1-2 minutes, whilst the child lies down or sits in the lap of the parent.

The parent can be taught the sequence so that treatment can be continued at home, once a day, or more often in acute situations (for example, if the child has a fever).
