Charlotte offers visits to teach interested parents a tried and true infant and child massage method called Tui Na — in her office, or right in your own home where you and your baby are most comfortable.
Tui Na massage has been used thousands of years in the East to keep kids healthy and treat illness. This type of massage is largely unknown here in the US — Charlotte would like to change that as it works! Research shows babies thrive from the touch of a loving parent. In fact, children who receive massage are healthier, and maintain healthy weight throughout their development.
Tui Na massage is safe for infants and toddlers and is most effective in children 5 and under. Tui Na is especially nice for treating children because it is gentle, induces no side effects, and acupressure points are easily activated without the use of needles.
Tui Na is Charlotte’s favorite method for supporting wellness in babies and young children, because it builds and strengthens their growing immune and digestive systems and promotes healthy maturation. Babies and young kids love gentle caring touch — all it takes is a loving heart and warm hands! Tui Na is also used for many common childhood issues such as hyperactivity, restless sleep, constipation and diarrhea, colic, nausea, poor appetite, nightmares, bed-wetting, ear aches, acute illnesses, fevers, coughs, congestion, torticollis, and other childhood issues.
The basic techniques to build immunity are easy to learn and can be reinforced by you at home after a lesson with Charlotte. You may also get sessions with Charlotte as needed for more acute matters. The gift of Tuina is wonderful for new parents and babies, and a tool that can be used years to come to help keep your child well, and promote healing of childhood illness as needed.
Price depends on location, and time spent. Email Charlotte at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for your visit.
