By having regular massages for your children you are teaching them to put their bodies first and develop self-care practices that can extend into their adult life. Treating children continues to be my favourite treatments as I witness their body's grow strong and develop healthy habits.
Regular massage has so many benefits for children:
decreasing anxiety and increasing calmness
decreasing tone from activity
encourage discussion about their body's well being
Bones can get misaligned and muscles stained when children injur themselves. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to get a child's body back on track.
** Please Note:
Most children can handle a 30 minute massage for their first time. We work up to full massages as they become more relaxed and familiar with treatment.
Bring shorts and a tank top for the child. (I’ve recently had a 4 year old lay still for 45min and enjoy the whole experience).
