Little People Need Massage Too!
No matter what the age, the body can hurt. The brain can be stressed. Pediatric massage can be helpful for children with a wide range of symptoms; including musckuloskeletal injuries from sports, anxiety and depression as well as injury rehabilitation. Starting your child on a stress-reduction journey young can prepare them for a healthier adult life!
Treating little people takes special care. When Jessica decided to focus on paediatric massage, she sought out the best education from the LiddleKidz Foundation.
Jessica has completed both the Certified Pediatric Massage Course, as well as the Touch Therapy for Kids with Cancer Course.
Jessica loves working with children, and is a strong believer that nurturing touch should be a part of every child's life. Kids feel comfortable in Jessica’s presence, as she creates a warm and fun environment for them to be treated in.
Sports Therapy for Kids
Competitive sports means pain, no matter how safe they are! If your child is in a sport more than once a week, chances are they could benefit from massage. Therapeutic treatments can help ease growing pains, increase flexibility and aid recovery from injuries. Jessica has treated competitive hockey players, professional dancers and even a budding tennis star. No matter what the sport, Jessica is guaranteed to relate to your child's pain, and can help them on their journey to becoming a pro!
Massage for Sick Kids
Being sick isn't fun, but being a kid and being sick is even worse.
To offset the bad, consider integrating massage into your child's care. Jessica has taken in-depth courses in Cancer Care and Children to ensure you can feel safe doing so. Touch therapy can help boost the immune system, increase a sense of wellbeing with your child and help combat the depression illness can cause.
Special Needs & Conditions Care
Did you know massage can be an excellent therapy for kids with Special Needs? Jessica prides herself on providing inclusive care for all patients, whether they are non-mobile, non-verbal or have issues focusing and relaxing.
Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Rett’s, Down Syndrome, Muscular Distrophies, ADHD & ADD are just a few of the conditions that can benefit from massage therapy.
Treatments can aid in releasing muscle tightness, decrease stress levels and help teach children how to communicate when they are feeling pain!
