Tuina for Babies

A gentle, therapeutic Chinese massage for babies

Tuina massage provides a healthcare routine that makes your touch an important part of daily life, strengthening your relationship and nurturing your child in body, mind and spirit.

This unique form of health-care was developed in China to promote the development of a healthy body, a strong immune system, and also to stimulate the brain during the child’s most crucial formative period – up to the age of 6 years.

In China, Tuina is still used in hospitals today for the treatment of illness as well as for ensuring healthy child development.

It is an extremely safe form of treatment, treating the child as a whole person, without unwanted side-effects and with the advantages that a child does not have to undress and can even be gently massaged while asleep. Baby Tuina is proving valuable as a natural response to common health problems.

James loves getting the massage and seems very happy with the hands on feeling he gets when we do it – we can even massage James when he is sleeping without disturbing him. Early indications are this has been a very positive move for his development.
