Qigong Sensory Treatment (QST) massage

The sense of touch is vitally important to normal child development. Small sensory nerves called C-tactile fibers mediate the pleasureable and calming effect of touch, an important part of the bonding between parent and child. In children with autism recent studies have shown that their skin can have up to 50% fewer C-tactile fibers. Qigong Sensory Treatment (QST) massage is a soothing, touch-based autism treatment that helps maximize the C-tactile fibers available and normalize the system.  Parents are trained to perform the massage on their child for 15 minutes each day for up to two years to help their child regain a normal sense of touch and reduce or eliminate symptoms of autism. Results are apparent after as few as 30 days of treatment.
