Kids Wellness Massage

Hi everyone, it’s Zen, licensed acupuncturist, herbalist and founder of Healing with Zen, here to show you the five Tuina kids massage techniques that I use on kids for wellness. This is a Traditional Chinese Medicine massage that I do for all my pediatric patients when they come into the office for their acupuncture sessions.

 This massage can help with various health ailments listed below: 

  • Line pressing on thumb – great for all respiratory and lung issues. (cold, flu, allergies, asthma) 
  • Circle inward towards the heart – calming the mind, managing stress and anxiety, calming the nervous system 
  • Knead ST36 – great immune system boosting and overall energy 
  • Circle rubbing – digestive disorders like diarrhea or constipation 
  • Pinching pulling on back – overall wellness and vitality. Better circulation throughout the body

The benefit of doing this kids wellness massage is that you are stimulating a lot of the acupressure meridians and points in the body and this helps with overall Wellness. 

I find that kids respond well to this massage. You can perform it on newsborns, babies and kids up to 12 years old!

Kids love acupuncture and our founder, Zen, specializes in pediatric acupuncture sessions. Watch a demonstration here.
