Acupressure Massage for Babies, Toddlers and Young Children
Charlotte Sobeck is now offering visits to teach interested parents a tried and true infant and child massage method called Tui Na — 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 gain weight properly 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 keeping babies and young children well because it builds and strengthens their growing immune and digestive systems and promotes healthy maturation. Babies and young kids love the gentle touch, and all it takes is warm hands and a warm heart! Tui Na is also used for many common childhood issues such as hyperactivity, restless sleep, constipation and diarrhea, colic, torticollis, nausea, lack of appetite, nightmares, bed-wetting, ear aches, acute illnesses, fevers, coughs, congestion, and other childhood issues.
The basic techniques to build immunity are easy to learn and can be reinforced by you at home. In between you may get sessions with Charlotte as needed for more acute matters. The gift of Tui na 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.
