|Baby Tui Na Massage known as Paediatric Tuina
Tui Na Massage or Paediatric Tuina is a branch of
traditional Chinese Medicine and was developed from Tui Na for adults over a thousand years ago.
It has been extensively practised in China for at least 700
years and experience has revealed unique ways and means of
using baby tui na massage to affect the energy flow in the bodies of young children.
Babies have meridian systems that are not fully
developed, yet every aspect of a baby's growth and development
depends on Qi flow and its correct balance.
Tui Na Chinese massage for infants uses a whole system of
points and pathways that often do not correspond with any
of the adult ones. Tui Na Chinese massage for babies is powerful
medicine and when performed correctly, its effects are profound.
is during the first five years of a child's life that the
most important physical, neurological and behavioural developments
take place. This is the time when disturbances to the flow
and diffusion of vital Qi and its balance between the organs
can have the most seriously harmful and lasting effects. These
include retarded brain development, weakened immune response
and slow development of the musculo-skeletal system.
