Massage For Children and Infants

Understanding the Benefits of Massage For Children

Massage therapy isn’t just for adults. In fact, infants and children can also benefit from the healing power of touch. But is massage safe and effective for kids? Let’s explore some commonly asked questions and find out.

Is it ok for kids to get massages?

Absolutely! Massage can help young ones regulate their nervous system and relax from the stress and/or pain of a growing body!

What is the youngest age to get a massage?

There’s no specific age limit for when a child can start receiving massage therapy. In fact, some parents start massaging their baby in the early weeks of their life. This can help the parent and child bond, grow up with a positive relationship to touch.

Is it healthy to massage babies?

Yes, massage can be very healthy for babies. It can help promote relaxation, aid in digestion, and improve sleep patterns. It can also help hormone production. By producing oxytocin and endorphins, bonding and overall health can be improved with massage.

Will massage improve my child’s sleep?

Getting a good night’s sleep helps our children grow. But sometimes, little ones have trouble sleeping. Massage therapy is an effective way to help children sleep better. By regulating the nervous system, it can make it easier for them to sleep.

Does massage improve children’s digestion?

Yes! By stimulating digestion in infants and children, massage therapy can help ease constipation and reduce gas and bloating.
In addition, massage can help calm a fussy baby, which can be especially helpful for children with colic.

Massage therapy can also be beneficial for children with feeding difficulties. By stimulating the mouth and jaw muscles, massage can help improve sucking and swallowing, which can help infants better tolerate feeding.

Can massage therapists work on children?

Yes, many massage therapists are trained and qualified to work with children of all ages. In some cases, certain studios will chose not to provide massage to minors. In other cases, some studios or clinics may require a specific consent form signed by the parent.

Is massage good for kids?

Yes, massage therapy can be very beneficial for children. Massage can help reduce stress, anxiety and improve mood. This can positively impact behavior and the child’s social and brain development.

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!
