The Touch Therapy for Liddle Kidz in the NICU | Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is coming to the exciting city of Houston.
This Accredited 2-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital.
When families come to Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, they expect to find the technological advances and healing expertise of a university-affiliated academic hospital. What continues to surprise them is the special compassion and focus on families that distinguishes us as one of the finest hospitals in the nation.
Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital has been serving the community for over 20 years and is the primary teaching hospital for the pediatrics and obstetrics/gynecology programs at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston.
Our team of doctors, nurses, therapists and other allied healthcare professionals are focused on the specialized needs of women and children with an emphasis on quality, customer service and leading-edge research.
The Verizon Wireless Theater stages a variety of live concerts, and Hard Rock Cafe has long been a Theater District staple. Samba Grille offers up a diverse lunch menu and Brazilian-style rodizio service during the dinner hour.
If you’re not in the mind for a party evening, try catching a movie at 14 Pews microcinema. The small cinema space reopened in August 2010 in the old white wooden church at 800 Aurora and is already garnering praise for its innovative and sometimes provocative programming.
Ready for something to eat, try Burger Guys. Set in west Houston, the biz turns out gourmet burgers touting everything from Texas’ Kobe-style Akaushi beef and fried duck-eggs to Fancy Lawnmower Ale Mustard and Tobasco-mash aioli. Marques and Mazzu mix up more than just stellar sandwiches, too, also taking on Chicago-style hot dogs, house-made ice cream and old-fashioned drinks made with Imperial sugar. Expect a menu loaded with creative burger varieties—named and inspired by U.S. and international cities—like the golden-beet-and-egg-topped Sydney Burger or the Saigon with butter, pate, pickled carrot, radish, jalapeno and cilantro.
For dessert make a stop at Chocolate Bar. This store is packed with clever little novelties--cell phones, hand tools, cars--all created in luxuriously rich chocolate. Through a large window at the rear, you can look into the preparation area where all this chocolate magic is concocted.
But the heart of the operation is a marvelous ice cream cooler with a dozen stunning, made-on-site flavors that use chocolate to varying degrees. Patrons stand four deep to buy these frozen treasures.
Come to Houston and experience the fun with us!
Finally, an advanced specialty training program in pediatric massage for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for babies born prematurely or with complex medial conditions. The Liddle Kidz Foundation course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of massage and touch therapy for babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to become an advanced professional in the area of pediatric massage therapy.
Any experienced healthcare professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child and families needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided infant and pediatric massage education throughout the world.
With specialized training for babies born early, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
