            In past years, on the base of knowledge from upper generations, I got many valuable experince from practice. I summarized a new principle : “Same prescription for different diseases, same disease using different prescription”. I had healed many cases that former doctors haven’t met, or dare not take , or thought impossible. And even created quite a few miracle that western doctors couldn’t believe. In practice, I used Xiao Er Tuina for adults also and had healed many cases. That created a new field of Xiao Er Tuina. This skill had already attracted foreign massagists to come and learn Xiao Er Tuina. This promoted the international exchange of Tuina.
