Therapeutic Massage is a wonderful stress-buster for children just as it is for adults. Common stresses for kids are; too much on their plate, parents in poor relationships, parents leaving, anxiety, sibling demands, homework, nightmares, loss of a family member, fear of death and so on.

As for children’s behavioural response to Registered Massage Therapy, they are happier, in a better mood and most children report that they sleep better too. Children appear more relaxed, calm and oftentimes fall asleep during massage. Also, children who learn healthy views of touch and are provided with positive tactile experience by their caregivers are more likely to grow up to be adults with healthy self-esteem, a sense of appropriate boundaries and long-lasting intimate relationships.
