Paediatric Massage

“Touch therapy is one of the best ways to heal the insults to the body, mind and spirit.”
Gayle McDonald

Paediatric Massage is a safe and effective intervention to help children to reach their full potential.

Massage can be used in a variety of situations for a healthy child or a child with special healthcare needs.

Nurturing Angels approach allows us to tailor each treatment session to the needs of your child in that moment.

We work with children who live with various healthcare conditions such as;

  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Sleep issues
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sports Injuries
  • Cancer
  • Life long diagnosed conditions (Autism, Cystic Fibrosis, Cerebral Palsy)
  • Torticollis

However your child doesn’t need to have a specific health condition to benefit from massage, it can simply be because they enjoy it.

There are many benefits to massage therapy for children and young adults, some of which are documented and may include;

  • Condition and maintain healthy muscle tone and joint mobility
  • Increased body awareness, improve body image and self-esteem
  • Help to manage stress, anxiety and depression
  • Maintain a healthy digestive system and promote regular bowel movements
  • Assist with growing pains
  • Aids in better quality of sleep
  • Assists in balancing hormones
  • Helps to strengthen the immune system
  • Improved concentration and reduced aggression
  • Aids in respiratory function, helping to breathe better
  • Relaxes and calms or stimulates the nervous system depending on the type of massage
  • Assists with physical and cognitive development

If you are considering massage for your child, please contact us and we can set up a free 15 minute phone consultation to go over any questions or concerns you may have.
