Paediatric tuina shows a significant effect on reducing symptoms in children with acute diarrhoea, according to Chinese investigators. Eighty-six children aged 0-6 years with acute diarrhoea were randomised to receive usual care plus either paediatric tuina or sham tuina for 15–25 minutes, once per day, for three consecutive days. Tuina was applied at six points on the hands and abdomen according to a standardised prescription suggested by a panel of five paediatric tuina experts. Tuina was associated with a significant reduction in the number of diarrhoea episodes on day three compared with sham.
