Seminar description:

In the old medical books of the Song dynasty at 960-1279 there are records of treatments that have been modified to young children.

Children`s Qi acts different, because of its rapid changes and movement, the diseases develop differently and have different patterns, therefore methods of treatments need to be different. Both needling and massage of young children must be quicker and gentler. Pediatric Tuina is different in the rhythm, techniques and areas of applying the treatment usually use fast techniques as Tui and Rou.

Tuina special technique for children allow us to move and fix their Qi movement without giving them pain or making them feel uncomfortable with the treatment

Tuina modified to children is used till the age of 6/7. It is a gentle and simple yet very effective method.

In China- acupuncture, herbal medicine and Tuina are all part of the training of Chinese medicine doctors, and it is widely used in hospitals and clinics there, but in the Western countries still Chinese medicine is not widely used to treat children and small babies even for people who do use alternative medicine on themselves, and one of the reasons is because they are afraid to use acupuncture, a method who is considered to be aggressive and penetrative for children and babies.

The way Tuina is applied to children and the special technique is not yet well known in the Western countries, it should be the first choice to treat children and as the child grows older we should use more needling.

In this two days’ workshop you will be introduced to Pediatric Tuina, the special techniques, how to use them and when. You will know how to give a full treatment with Tuina to children from the time they are born till 6/7 years old for many different symptoms such as: abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, fever, cough, restlessness, sleep problems, winter colds and many more.

  2. Pattern diagnosis
  3. Techniques
  4. Special treatment areas and meridian lines unique to children
