The very first study in UK on the long term benefits of Tui Na Massage Therapy for reducing the symptoms of Autism in children is recruiting participants!!
Message from Tui Na Centre:
“Dear friends and followers,
We are trying to raise the funds through GOFUNDME that will enable us to conduct the very first UK case study on ‘Tui Na massage Therapy for Autism in Children’.
Study will monitor the results of daily massage treatment delivered by parents, in duration of 6 months and will follow the progress in reducing the symptoms of Autism including: Speech delay, insomnia, gut issues, self-harm, concentration, hyperactivity, hypo activity, social integration, hypersensitivity and tip toeing.
30 parents with children on the spectrum will be fully trained in over two days in order to deliver the ‘Tui Na massage for Autism’ to their children on daily basis for the period of 6 months. In addition every parent will receive minimum of 6 support visits during this period and attend another full day advanced course after third month of treatments.
For more details on the study, including the video demonstration of the effects of Tui Na massage on a child with autism, visit Tui Na project webpage. This page also gives information on how to take part or donate towards the project, and on details how the money will be spent.
