Children and Massage

babymassageWere you aware that Massage Therapy is beneficial for both adults AND children? It has been proven that our first sense to develop is our sense of touch. Infants also respond well to massage especially if they need to be calmed down or to help them fall asleep.

In fact, Tiffany Field of the Touch Research Institute (TRI) believes that every child, regardless of their age, should be massaged on a regular basis at bedtime.

It helps not only to comfort children but to give them an added sense of security and trust while also bonding with them.

What is very surprising to most adults is that children, especially teenagers, also get stressed out! Especially when starting their first day of school, before a big test, and before that next big game or track meet.

Our Massage Therapists at New Life Massage and Whole Living Solutions are trained to meet their needs. We listen to them, we observe and assess their needs then discuss with the parent and child what our plan of action is to help get them feeling better. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or to schedule an appointment. We look forward to “Keeping In Touch”.
