[TCM & Health 1 ] How TCM Helps Keep a Baby Healthy?


My baby is sick and I don't want to use western medicine. What should I do? Please try a traditional Chinese massage!


Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest medical systems in the world. It's been practiced for more than 3,000 years, and today it not only continues to benefit Chinese people, but has also been introduced to many countries as an alternative or complement to Western medicine.


In the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Health series, we will look into how TCM helps us maintain good health. Let's get started from the beginning of a human being's life, when they are a baby.


The immune system of our baby is very weak and any kind of medicine will have a negative effect, so acupoint massage based on TCM body meridians can be very helpful.

Pediatric Chiropractic Care is considered to be a very effective measure for helping to regulate the health of the spleen and stomach in a baby, and alleviate night-time crying, restless sleep, involuntary urination, sweating and other issues.

具体方法是:The specific method is as follows.


1. Let the baby lie face down on the bed, keeping the back straight and relax.


2. The parent puts theirs thumbs and forefingers of their two hands together and gently pinches the two sides from the child's tailbone upward along the spine. The parent should pinch the skin and flesh upwards with force and then down to the hairline at the neck. It is considered to be effective when the skin on both sides of the spine is flush with color.


Pinching from the tailbone to the cervical vertebra is known as the compensation method and carrying out the procedure in the opposite direction known as the heat-clearing method. Parents can do this once or twice per day and repeat 5 to 10 times for each session.
