CHILDREN'S

MASSAGE THERAPY

The need for children to receive massage therapy has been finally recognized medicinally, as well as prescribed by physicians. Children, no different than adults, have stresses that are both physiological as well as emotional in nature. Catching these in time can prevent future disease and pave the way for a happier and healthier childhood!

All massages are custom-tailored to meet your child’s needs and performed by highly trained licensed massage therapists.
