The growing child

Massage is not only for babies, it can continue to be a part of your relationship throughout their childhood.

The massage routine can be adapted to suit your child as they grow from a baby to a toddler and onto an adolescent.

Things to consider –

  • always ask permission
  • as they grow they may not want the whole massage so do whichever area they chose
  • massage regularly, at least once a week
  • be patient
  • make sure it is doable, it needs to fit in with both yours and their lives
  • Enjoy the one on one time
  • Massage can relax all ages – remembering this can help with difficult times when nurturing touch maybe more suitable than words for example exam times.
