A therapeutic massage focused on people under 18. From athletic injuries to strains from overstuffed backpacks, this massage is focused on issues young people are faced with.
As the parent of a young athlete, I understand how difficult it can be for an adolescent to recover from an injury. While young bodies do have a remarkable ability to heal quickly, this can’t be taken for granted. The fist hurdle caregivers face is often convincing a kid that they need take their injury seriously. Sitting out and resting an injury and returning to activity slowly is often not in the nature of most athletes.
Youth massage sessions usually include massage on the injured area and surrounding tissues, passive stretching, and application of oils/liniment to the affected area.
Consent of both child and guardian are required at each service.
Have your child wear comfortable clothing, I will work over clothing whenever practical. They may need to remove some clothing (we will discuss comfort and specifics during the consultation). Guardian must remain on premises during this service.
Massage and physiotherapy are routine services for every type of professional sports. Maintaining supple muscles, range of motion, and working out trouble spots is an integral part in the life of all professional athletes. If you are interested in making massage a regular part of your young athletes life, you are welcome to talk to me about massage packages.
Youth Massage Sessions usually run 45 minutes to 1 hour because they include a full consultation prior to any bodywork. This allows your child to be fully informed and comfortable.
Massage lasts 30 minutes.
