1. Put a thin layer of clothing, such a T- shirt, on your child’s chest.
2. Use a cupped hand or percussor cup. If done right, you will hear a popping sound. Percussion should not cause red marks on your child.
3. Do not percuss over the backbone, breastbone, or lower two ribs.
4. Do CPT before meals or 30 minutes after meals.
5. Percuss on both the right and left sides.
6. Your child should get two treatments daily and increase to three to four when sick.
