Touch fosters connection and love, but it also heals us physically. Join us at Portland Healing Space on Saturday, October 28 for a Tui Na workshop—a fun, family-friendly event that will teach you how to strengthen your child’s immune system in a safe and natural way.
What is Tui Na?
Pediatric Tui Na is a specific branch of Chinese medicine created to nourish, support and promote bonding with our precious children. Literally meaning “push and pull,” Tui Na is an ancient modality of Chinese Medicine that helps to expel illness and promote wellness by applying pressure to specific points on the body.
What are its benefits?
Tui Na addresses the root cause of illness while simultaneously lessening symptoms. It helps treat acute conditions—common colds, allergies, constipation, diarrhea, asthma, sleeping problems, and stress reactions—and works wonders as a preventative, immune- boosting medicine.
It also supports children’s immune systems, digestion, nervous systems, and emotional well being in a playful, nourishing, and loving way. Children as young as newborns and up to twelve years old can benefit from this ancient practice, although it is most effective for children under age five.
Do I need special training beforehand?
Nope! You need no special tools to practice, and the manipulations are basic, easy to follow, and well tolerated by children. Regular practice takes only ten minutes once or twice daily upon waking or before bedtime to help defend against colds and the flu.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- Basic manipulation techniques to stimulate well being
- Basic acupressure point locations
- Calming massage for better sleep
- How to reduce fever, drug-free
- Additional protocol guidelines for healing the common cold, coughs and digestive issues
- Tips to support the immune system through diet and herbal remedies
Fall is the perfect time to focus on rejuvenating your child’s body and spirit, not to mention you’ll receive a wonderful opportunity to develop a stronger bond between the two, three, or four of you!
We hope to see you there!
