Chinese paediatric massage is a safe and extremely effective therapy for a wide range of common childhood ailments. It helps to boost energy, strengthen the immune system, promote body development, and build up a strong constitution. Therefore, it is also an excellent way to prevent other diseases.
Each session lasts about 30 minutes, and children in general respond well. Given time and budget permitted, the more frequent a child has treatments, the quicker result we will see.
