Massage Therapy

Pediatric Massage

Children can also benefit from the healing power of massage. They experience pain and stress in almost the same way adults do.

Pediatric massage can:

  • Relieve discomfort from congestion, gas and colic
  • Slow and deepen respiration rate
  • Promote deeper and longer sleep
  • Help provide relaxation
  • Relieve discomfort from teething
  • Increase blood flow
  • Promote the immune system
    • Massaged Infants have stronger immune systems resisting infections and other health problems
  • Promote joints and muscle development
    • Massaged Infants tend to have more flexible joints, muscles and greater coordination of muscular movement
  • Increased alertness

Pediatric massage is for children ages 2 years and up. If your child has difficult time adjusting to new situations, new people or new environment, he or she may benefit from massage therapy. Children that benefit from pediatric massage experience:

  • Decreased anxiety and stress reduction
  • Pain reduction
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Increased self esteem
  • Healthy sense of boundaries
  • Overall sense of well-being
