Hi all, are any of you familiar with Qigong Sensory massage for treatment of kids with autism and sensory disorders? My son's OT is offering to let him be part of a study that involves the massage. He's currently got sensory and emotional issues that are basically classified as "undiagnosed developmental delay" or something like that. The study is a major time commitment, 1/2 hour sessions once or twice a week, one saturday a month for 1 hour, and 15 minute daily home massages. The office is about 30 minutes away, so I'd have to add an hour to any visit.
On the one hand, I'll be on maternity leave for much of this so it's kind of a once in a lifetime opportunity - I wouldn't be able to do it if I were working.
On the other hand, I'll have a newborn and will have to cart the newborn all over town. This was not a fun thing to do when my son was a newborn.
I don't know enough about Qigong to decide if this would be worth it. Any thoughts/experience?
