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.
