Tui Na Chinese Massage or Paediatric Tui Na 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 affecting 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.
It 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.
- Baby Tui Na Chinese massage maintains the vital Qi (energy)
patterns that are essential for healthy development. The result,
is a very healthy, strong, bright, happy child.
- Good brain development ensures not only high intelligence but
effective functioning of all the more vegetative processes as
well. The impact that Tui Na has on the intellectual development
of a child raised in a stimulating environment & with a close
parental-child relationship can seem like a miracle.
- A strong immune system means not only good resistance to childhood
ailments but also a greatly reduced tendency to react to the ever
increasing amounts of substances in our environment that can cause
allergies such as asthma and eczema.
- Strong well developed neuromuscular and skeletal systems ensure
good motor co-ordination which enhances the development of the
physical skills such as writing, drawing and sports.
- Baby Tui Na Chinese massage is completely holistic in its action
and treats the whole body. Most mothers want to give their children
the best start in life. This means doing all that is possible
to allow each child to develop to the full potential determined
by it genes.
- Baby Tui Na Chinese massage achieves its results by balancing Qi (energy) and promoting its free flow.
All illnesses are the result of disturbance to the normal flow of Qi. Tui Na can restore this flow to treat the most common health problems of young children:
- convulsions etc.
- Oil based massages can be very relaxing and soothing and help
to reinforce the bond between parent and child. Tui Na does the
same and much more and can be done through clothing.
- Baby Tui Na is unique. It is the only hands-on system that has
been developed specifically for the total healthcare of infants
from birth to six years.
- Baby Tui Na is completely different from Western baby massage.
- Other forms of massage currently used for babies and young children
are based only on slight adaptations of the methods used for adults
and are generally not remedial in content.
- Baby Tui Na is based on sophisticated theory that has been systematically
documented over a period of one thousand years during which all
the techniques in use today have been tested a million times.
- Baby Tui Na enables you to balance the intrinsic energies of your child's body and mind.
The two areas of Baby Tui Na (healthcare and treatments) are taught as part of the regular Tui Na courses:
Tuina Foundation Diploma
