Chinese remedial infant massage or xiao er tui na is a safe, non-invasive, low-cost, and extremely effective therapy for the treatment of a wide variety of common childhood ailments. Unlike Western infant massage, Chinese infant massage uses very specific protocols or treatments for specific ailments. Most common childhood complaints respond in only one or two treatments. Dr. Fan teaches both parents and practitioners alike how to diagnose and treat the most common pediatric complaints with Chinese infant massage.
