Pediatric Massage

Why pediatric massage?


Babies and children simply love to be touched. In fact, they thrive on it and it is a crucial part of their development. Children need physical contact for healthy growth and development. Nurturing touch promotes physiological, neurological and psychological development and function.


Healthy children receive the benefits of touch from many sources, but just as with adults, the symptoms of physical and emotional stress can often be alleviated by massage therapy from a trained professional.

 

Some of these can include

‣ strenuous athletics or exercise

‣ physical pain from injury or medical treatment

‣ family difficulties, including death, divorce, or moving

‣ difficulties in school, either academic or social

‣ natural disasters or other traumatizing events

 

Sadly, not all children receive the basic, necessary touch in their everyday lives. This can sometimes happen when children

 

‣ live in an institutional environment (hospital, nursing home, orphanage)

‣ have a medical condition that makes people afraid to touch them (legitimate or imagined)

‣ have a condition that makes untrained touch dangerous

‣ have been neglected or abused at home

‣ have a condition that makes them averse to touch

 

Ages: 1 month - 11 years

Includes consultation with parent/guardian.
