TCM for kids? Some parents are taking an alternative approach to paediatric wellness



For some parents, helping their children recover from coughs and colds means taking them for paediatric tuina by the sinseh. Chen Yingqing, who has been doing that for her five-year-old son since he was two, is one of them.

“He used to have the occasional cough or cold, and would get irritated by the coughing and runny nose,” said the 34-year-old teacher. “He also couldn't sleep well at night and would get cranky at times.”

Chen decided to give traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) a go after her son’s phlegm and coughing persisted after being on conventional medicine for a week; a colleague had suggested she try a TCM clinic.
