Research Proven Treatment For Autism Training in QST Massage for Children with Autism
Qigong Sensory Training is an exciting research-based treatment for young children with autism that has been shown in controlled studies to improve social skills, language and behavior. Based on Chinese medicine, the massage techniques normalise touch and stimulate self-regulation; children feel more comfortable and more receptive to connecting to others. Eye contact, sensory problems, tantrums, sleep, digestion and behavior improve. Under the guidance of trained therapists, treatment is given daily at home by parents and weekly or bi-weekly by the therapist.
Results after 5 months of massage have shown:
Improved sleep, digestion and sensory awareness
More eye contact and social connection
Easier transitions and fewer meltdowns
Decreased behavior problems and aggression
social skills and language
