Editorial Reviews

Review

"Basic children's anatomy and physiology are presented in easy terms parents can understand, making this an excellent pick for any parent's library." (The Midwest Book Review)

"Why this book has not been written before is a mystery, but now, here it is. [A] wonderful gift for mother-to-be, dads, grandparents, nurses, and caregivers." (Martha Stoodley, writer and yoga teacher)

" . . . a resource that takes our natural healing touch to a whole new level. . . . the practices in this text merely expand on our natural instincts." (Dr. Tami Brady, TCM Reviews, Feb 2008)

"Finando doesn't suggest that we turn our backs on Western medicine, but rather that we expand our families' wellness and medicine chests by discovering the power our bodies have to self-heal when ancient healing practices are applied." (Terri Hall-Jackson, Care2 Green Living, Jan 2008)

“This book reveals the importance of touch in both childhood development and healing. Donna Finando shows that touch is also key to restoring health when illness occurs. . . Findndo presents an in-depth explanation of each condition, providing information on causative factors, dietary and behavior recommendations, point techniques that can offer relief, and when to seek medical help.” (Embody Magazine, March 2011)

“Instructions for treatment are provided step by (numbered) step. Notes are included in a contrasting color after many of the steps, explaining why you’re treating the exact area you’re treating. Facing pages include diagrams of a child’s body with the sections you’ll be treating highlighted in red. The skeleton is included in these drawings so you have good reference points...It isn’t encyclopedic, but it covers all of the most common childhood illnesses. Because it doesn’t rely on acupoint therapy alone, this would make a good general-purpose health book for a new parent.” (Titus2homemaker.com, July 2013)

From the Back Cover

PARENTING / HEALING

Touch is critical to the development of babies and children. It establishes both their sense of self and their connectedness to the rest of the world. Donna Finando shows that touch is also key to restoring health when illness occurs. As a mother and grandmother, she has experienced the frustration and helplessness of watching a sick child suffer. As an acupuncturist and massage practitioner, she has found there are many simple ways parents can provide relief and even healing for many common childhood ailments by using touch therapy.

Trigger point therapy releases restricted muscles, and acupressure allows energy to flow freely, activating the body’s remarkable healing abilities. Colds, sore throats, ear infections, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, and even asthma are some of the common conditions that can be relieved by acupoint and trigger point touch therapy. Finando presents an in-depth explanation of each condition, providing information on causative factors, dietary and behavior recommendations, point techniques that can offer relief, and when to seek medical help. The gentle techniques that form this healing practice also extend to other parent-child interactions, offering a comprehensive model for the care and nurturing of children.

DONNA FINANDO, L.Ac., L.M.T., is a practitioner of acupuncture and massage specializing in myofascial meridian therapy and myofascial release techniques for the treatment of chronic and acute pain and dysfunction. She lives on Long Island, New York, where she has been in continual practice since 1976. She is coauthor of Trigger Point Therapy for Myofascial Pain and the author of Trigger Point Self-Care Manual.

This book is helpful for parents as well as professionals working with babies. A brief and simple explanation of the meridian theory is given, but is not necessary to understand some of the hand positions and therapy that is helpful for kids.

This is a good book the only problem I had was that it used alot of drawings, I bought another book "healin touch for children massage reflexology and acupressure for children from 4-12yrs" by craig k. brown and this one is very good it uses actual children no drawings.

Good illustrations and useful techniques, but I felt it missed important and common childhood conditions like eczema for example. Good book but doesn't cover enough ground.
