Marybetts Sinclair's pediatric massage classes are for massage therapists who would like to become as comfortable massaging children as they are massaging adults. For those of us who love children, massaging them is interesting, fun and expands our client base so that we can truly have a "family practice." In addition, from our work with adults we know that there are many
musculoskeletal issues that could be resolved far more easily if treated when they first occur.
For example, poorly healed birth injuries can lead to structural problems, early emotional trauma can be stored in adult bodies as chronic tension or an inability to feel, and triggerpoints from poorly healed traumatic injuries can contribute to long-standing musculoskeletal pain. We are truly practicing preventative medicine when we assist children in working through such problems. Read More...
