Pediatric Massage

My Pediatric massage is a gentle and therapeutic style massage for young people under the age of 12. Children experience problems in a similar way that adults do. Massage is an excellent way to help children alleviate pain, anxiety, and depression. As well as teaching them the benefits of “good, or nurturing touch.” This touch is important in children’s ability to form bonds and attachments, as well as develop into well-adjusted adults.
Massage duration varies greatly depending on the child’s attention span, sensitivity to touch and their cooperation. My youngest client is five years old, and I’ve been massaging her since she was three! She loves to give her mommy and daddy massages, and uses techniques that she picked up from me.

Some of the numerous benefit’s for children receiving massages are quite similar to those of adults:

  • Healthy sense of boundaries
  • Increased bonding and attachment
  • Increased self esteem
  • Pain reduction
  • Increased pulmonary function
  • Stress reduction

Not only do children who grow up with healthy views of touch tend to grow up into adults with self-esteem and develop long standing relationships. Massage has also been found to be very effective for children suffering from ailments such as diabetes, asthma, and other skin or arthritic problems. It is now even being recommended for children with cancer, due to the current belief that the reduction in stress of children boosts their immune system and their ability to resist diseases.

Children suffering from the following can benefit greatly from routine, quality pediatric massages!

  • Autism
  • Eating disorders
  • Hyperactivity or other psychiatric disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Cancer
