Our one-day courses are structured as follows:

Firstly you will be introduced to the principles of Tui Na massage, the theory behind it and its potential for reducing the symptoms of Autism.

We will then move on to the practical part of the course, 28 steps of massage treatment that covers all of the above symptoms. Techniques are demonstrated by Leonid in blocks of six steps. Following each such demonstration parents will practice those steps in pairs with each other, regularly swapping places so that both can take part and learn.

The main focus of the course is on practicing these steps.

The course is intensive but delivered in a fun learning environment. A commitment by yourselves to learn, practice and apply the massage techniques at home will ensure a rewarding experience and help achieve a stronger bond between you and your child through simple touch. It is a skill which will stay with you for a life time and the benefits for your child, yourself and family life will be equal to the level of commitment by yourselves to learning and applying the techniques.

Massage not only benefits the person receiving the massage but can greatly improve your own stress and anxiety levels. Learning the appropriate techniques and applying the daily treatments yourself can become a convenient (you choose when and for how long the treatment), cost effective and beneficial therapy.

During the course we will also discuss common difficulties you might encounter during the first days of treatment at home. We will explain how to overcome these so your treatment can continue successfully and daily massage can take a special place in strengthening the bond that you have with your child even further.

To complete the course we will also have short individual discussions with each parent indicating which points will enhance their own child’s treatment further. Children with Autism are often either hyper-sensitive or hypo-sensitive to touch but some depending of the area of the body may be a combination of both. Hypo-sensitive children are generally under responsive to touch and the techniques should be performed with deeper touch and pressure than with children who are hyper-sensitive. The appropriate pressure will be discussed and demonstrated during the course in detail for each child.

Following the completion of the Tui Na course all attendees will receive a certificate, course book and a video with the complete treatment plan for future reference.
