Pediatric Massage: An Integrative Approach to Children's Healthcare
Massage therapy has been found to be beneficial in many clinical conditions. Touch stimulates the brain and most noticeably affects the limbic system, which is involved with emotion, learning, and memory. Children have a fundamental need for tactile stimulation with respect to our relational nature as human beings. Touch furthers growth and development, and is essential for our survival. Receiving professional touch therapy, therefore, can be a vital contribution to the healing process and can aid in healthy development. Children require tactile stimulation through a variety of sources in order to fully develop their body, mind and spirit.
Those who receive massage therapy may experience many benefits including decreased anxiety, improved pulmonary and immune function, increased weight gain, enhanced body image, healthy sense of boundaries, stress reduction and an overall sense of well-being.
During this information-packed session, participants will learn about the many benefits of pediatric massage through review of available research, as well as the indications and contraindications for pediatric massage therapy. There will be demonstration and hands-on practice of simple pediatric massage techniques, including those which aid in decreasing pain, anxiety, stress, discomfort and manage some common chronic pediatric conditions.
Participants will learn developmentally appropriate adaptations of common pediatric massage techniques and will take away applications that will add to a health care provider's professional practice and integrative tool kit.
