What is Pediatric Tuina?

Tuina massage refers to all manual therapies in Chinese medicine. Pediatric Tuina is a particular form of tuina. It is based on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and developed its own techniques and manipulations. It is used to treat 20+ common health problems in children between 0-6 years old.

In 2015, the minister of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China issued an official document to re-introduce and promote the practice of pediatric tuina therapy, in an effort to reduce the current overuse of antibiotics in pediatric practice.

With the help of government, pediatric tuina quickly regained its popularity in the past few years. Its proven effectiveness, with no side effects, offers parents a safe and natural solution to help their kids thrive. Pediatric tuina is now easily accessible to the public and frequently practiced in hospitals, clinics, and by parents in China.

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.
