by Jessica Konink
Many research studies show that Massage Therapy can reduce both physical discomfort, as well as, ease emotional symptoms associated with various pediatric medical conditions.
Pediatric massage is performed with a gentle approach in the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, and is intended to promote optimal health and well-being, for children and adolescents; of all ages, in all stages of life.
Registered Massage Therapy can reduce pain and anxiety in children with debilitating medical conditions. Pediatric massage takes into consideration each child's individual needs by assessing their physical development, cognitive development, and general heath, with a series of orthopedic tests prior to commencing treatment.
A Pediatric Massage Therapy treatment can also help manage chronic conditions such as; Asthma, by providing relaxation and reducing tension in the respiratory muscles of the chest, mid-back, and neck.
