What is Pediatric Massage?
Massage is beneficial for people of all ages! Pediatric massage is for kids between the age of 1 and 18. Of course a massage session for a one year old is a lot different than one for an eighteen year old. Like all massage at Blaine Healing Arts Massage Therapy, pediatric massage is adapted to the specific needs of the individual. We work within the comfort level of the child and parent to provide the best possible care.
