About Qigong (CHEE-gong) Massage:

Parents can implement a simple, effective Qigong Massage Program in the home that has been scientifically proven to reduce autistic behavior and tantrums, and to aid in social and language learning.

Several research studies, including a randomized, controlled design study, have been conducted to date on the effectiveness of Qigong Sensory Training (QST) for autism spectrum disorder. At the end of five months of QST therapy, treated children show improved behavior and social/language skills, and decreased sensory and self-regulatory impairment, compared to the children in the control group.
