How does Massage Therapy benefit children?

Children and adolescents benefit from Massage Therapy just as adults do. Massage Therapy provides a calming effect promoting improved sleep quality and quantity, enhanced attention to detail due to increased focus, stress management, increased body awareness, or enhanced digestion with abdominal massage. Children and adolescents benefit reduced tension from sports activities, ailments, conditions, and injuries. Children also benefit reduced tension from growing pains.

Self-Care needs are important for children and adolescents on a regular basis. Parents of younger children are welcome to stay during treatment and are encouraged to learn soothing techniques to practice while at home. Treatment with children is always child led, although children move frequently and may not appear to be relaxed they are receiving the wellness benefits provided by Massage Therapy.

Appointment recommendation for young children is 30 minute or 45 minute treatments. 60 minute treatments are available for adolescents. Direct billing is also available for children and adolescents with most insurance providers. It is always best to contact your insurance provider to determine your insurance coverage.
