Why Pediatric Tuina works so well
We treat the root causes and restore the body’s natural healing processes
Chinese medicine not only relieves the symptoms, it also targets the root causes of the problem. Most of the illnesses heal naturally without intervention. However, when certain factors impede healing, the body needs help. Pediatric tuina treatments can accelerate the healing process.
Young children respond quickly
Pediatric Tuina is an ideal approach for treating young children. It is gentle and induces no unwanted side effects. Acupuncture points and meridians are activated without the use of needles. Until the age of 6, children in general respond very well to Tuina massage therapy.
Easy application, parents are able to carry on at home to reinforce the effect of the treatment
One of the biggest advantages of Pediatric Tuina is its easy application. After the initial treatment, parents will be given 1- 3 simple manipulations on relevant acupuncture points/meridians to continue the treatment at home. It reinforces the treatment and improves the results greatly.
Does it hurt?
No, it does not hurt. It is a very active massage treatment, but it is light and does not hurt.
How much it cost, and how long it lasts?
The treatment is $50 + tax, and it takes about 30min to 45min for each treatment.
What if my child does not cooperate?
We do our best to provide a comfortable and soothing environment for your child and our therapists are used to treating with children of all ages. In the circumstance where the treatment can not be performed, you will be given guidance and instructions to apply the treatment.
How long does it take to see results?
