Time: 10am - 5pm

Paediatric tui na is a powerful form of medical massage which can be used either preventatively or to help a child through chronic or acute illness. It can be used in the clinic and also taught to parents. During the day, we will learn some of the key techniques and sequences that may be used in commonly-seen childhood conditions, based on pattern diagnosis. There will be an emphasis on practical work. Participants will leave able to use it immediately in their clinics or on their own children.
