Pediatric Massage

Pediatric Massage is the technique of giving conscious and structured touch with palm-either stroking, gently pressing or simply placing the hand on the body. The touching stimulates receptors on skin that travels along the nerve network to the brain, reaching the coordinating system that produces oxytocin. When oxytocin is released, and the relaxation, calming, increasing communication, pain release and better circulation are immediate.  This helps child’s ability to concentrate, learn, think abstractly as well as develop his or her motor skills and self esteem.
