Pediatric Massage

Duration is determined case-by-case.
Little people have stresses and tension much like adults do. But, since their bodies are smaller than an adults, special considerations and adjustments need to be made.

Three things are always taken into consideration when massaging people age 0-18.
First, the child will always be asked whether he/she would like to receive a massage.
Second, the child should be aware of what is happening to him/her; the massage will be explained in age appropriate ways.
Finally, the massage will be gentle. Children have more skin receptors per square inch than adults and can get over stimulated easily.
