Tuina modified to children is used till the age of 6/7. It is gentle and simple yet very effective method.

In china- acupuncture, herbal medicine and Tuina are all part of the training of Chinese medicine doctors, and it's widely used in hospitals and clinics there but at the western countries still Chinese medicine is not widely used to treat children and small babies even for people who does use alternative medicine on them self, and one of the reasons is because they are afraid to use acupuncture, a method who is consider to be aggressive and penetrative for children and babies.
