A noninvasive alternative to conventional Western medicine, Chinese pediatric massage provides practitioners with great flexibility in choosing a successful course of treatment to improve the health and energy of children without over whelming their systems. Chinese pediatric massage has fewer side effects than other forms of treatment, making it more tolerable for children, easier on their parents. And more effective in improving the patients long-term health.
The clearly illustrated guide is designed to give all health care providers – body-workers, acupuncturists, naturopaths, chiropractors, and allopathic practitioners – who know the general concepts of traditional Chinese medicine the tools and knowledge they need to successfully use the Chinese pediatric massage in treating their patients. Effective on children from birth to through preadolescence, Chinese pediatric massage is a valuable therapeutic addition to the repertoire of any practitioner. It considers how a child’s energetic framework differs from that of an adult, and accounts for these physiological and anatomical differences through assessment, point locations, and treatment.
