The treatments have no side effects; hence you have nothing to worry. They’re natural yet effective. They are even safe for kids. Have you tried allowing your kids experience relaxing massage services? Some parents, like me, are just so fond of massage services that they end up encouraging their kids to be massage lovers as well. You may ask, is child massage safe? That is if you want your son or daughter to undergo massage for their good health.
The simple answer is yes, it is safe. In fact, some midwives massage newborn babies to lift the infants’ mood and improve their blood circulation. A Japanese study also found that massage helps prevent jaundice in full-term babies. However, there are conditions to consider to ensure safety. For instance, the pressure must be mild when massaging infants or even school-age children. Can you imagine your 5-year-old child having a hard Shiatsu massage? That would have been absurd, if not hilarious.
Pay attention to your child’s age, lifestyle, preference, and medical needs. The information would be useful in identifying the appropriate massage service and in selecting the right masseur for your kids. Massage is always technique dependent. The same Swedish Massage can be rough or smooth, depending on your masseur. So for your children’s sake, choose wisely especially when your kids have medical needs. Kids with scoliosis, for example, need to be gently massaged on the back to avoid complications. There may even be a need to secure doctor’s approval for worst cases.
At Freedom Chinese Clinic, you and your kids are guaranteed safe all the time. The staff, masseurs, and acupuncturists are accommodating and competent. They are trained, therefore they won’t carelessly touch you without first asking for your medical history and preference. Kids love them for their friendliness.
When choosing massage services for your kids, you also need to be specific with your goal. For instance, remedial massage may be better for your kids after a sports injury. Remedial massage targets muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues to help manage pain and expedite recovery. It requires a different technique from a common relaxation massage.
Relaxation massage is perfect for regular sessions regardless your health status. You don’t need to be sick to avail of a good relaxation massage. If you are under chronic pressure due to work or family issues, then you have more need of a relaxation massage. As said, it improves blood and oxygen circulation and leaves you feeling invigorated. Even your children get stressed out too, emotionally or physically. A relaxation massage helps soothe the tension in the muscles and calm your children’s nerves.
In Sweden, school teachers are trained to administer basic massage techniques to their young students. They have proven that a simple neck massage can already do wonders to the students’ performance. It takes off the stress so the children can have more energy on academic tasks and social activities. Studies have shown that massage improves cognitive tasks such as memory, creativity, and concentration.
Massage benefits also include increased release of serotonin (feel good hormones), increased energy level, improved lymphatic drainage, elimination of toxins, stronger immune system, balanced nervous system, and decreased blood pressure.
Between parents and children, massage time can also serve as bonding time. It’s an opportunity for creative plays and interactive conversations. Children then become closer to their mothers resulting to increased sense of security and acceptance.
These benefits and practices all over the world are proof enough that child massage is relatively safe and effective for your kid’s holistic well-being. If you are still a bit hesitant, you can contact Freedom Chinese Medicine for inquiries. Their expert practitioners can best talk you of your worries and concerns. Your kids will surely appreciate your efforts in getting them a head start towards a healthier life. For as long as massage is done by a specialist, you need not worry about any negative side effect.
