1) Background
The effectiveness of TCM in the prevention and treatment of pediatric diseases has generally been recognized by parents. TCM treatment for children is safe and pain-free, whilst effectively relieving symptoms and enhancing children’s health. To cater to the increasing demands of pediatric services, STCMI set up its Pediatric outpatient clinic in November 2020. In addition to herbal treatment external therapies, such as pediatric massage, auricular beads and acupuncture, are also offered. We aim to provide professional treatment suited for each child and to help them maintain their best health condition.
