Many parents have told me recently that their babies and children are not sleeping as well as usual. This might be due to a combination of heightened anxiety in the household due to the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic, the longer days and the rising yang qi which is resonant of the arrival of spring.

However, these simple, easy-to-learn massages can be used on babies and children of all ages, whatever the cause of their bad sleep. They derive from a system of medical massage called paediatric tui na (xiao er tui na) which has been used in China for approximately 1200 years.
