Tuina Therapy

"Hands move outward as effects manifest within."

Xiao Er Tuina, also known as Pediatric Tuina, involves practitioners using their fingers to stimulate specific areas and points, primarily on the hands, forearms, head, face, lower legs, and along the spine. The goal is to enhance a child's natural immunity, manage, and prevent pediatric diseases. Children undergo a unique rhythm of physical and mental development; their spleen is generally less developed, leading to common issues like poor digestion, diarrhea, and inadequate nutrient absorption. Simultaneously, their liver tends to be relatively overactive, manifesting as busyness, impatience, easy agitation, screaming, and challenges with concentration. Pediatric Tuina has been employed for centuries in China and over five decades in Western countries to address and support these developmental challenges in children.

Tui Na, formerly known as 'An Mo' or massage in ancient times, is a therapeutic technique rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its historical application also included the treatment of pediatric conditions through manipulative massage.

Tui Na constitutes a significant pillar of Chinese Medicine, alongside acupuncture and herbal prescriptions. In contemporary times, Tui Na has evolved into an advanced treatment modality for various ailments. In China, it holds a prominent place within healthcare, employed in numerous hospitals to address health issues at their onset. Conversely, in the West, such conditions often only reach clinics when they have progressed into chronic states, days after the initial incident.
