Pediatric Massage: Mobile At-Home Therapeutic Massage in NJ

Pediatric Massage: A Growing Trend Backed by Evidence, Recommended by Many Health Professionals

Pediatric Massage (see Wikipedia's definition here) is fast becoming a growing trend among health-conscious American parents, as well as parents worldwide. This is being fueled by a combination of factors, including doctors recommending massage for their pediatric patients, as well as a plethora of new studies demonstrating that pediatric massage therapy can help with a number of childhood issues, and anecdotal accounts by children concur.

In fact, there are likely more benefits than are currently acknowledged; research on this topic, like most research involving Massage Therapy, is only in its infancy. As more studies are conducted showing favorable results, more researchers will be drawn to studying the very important topic of Pediatric Massage and Health. Presently, however, funding for such studies remains sparse. Even so, there are many studies that have already been conducted demonstrating that Pediatric Massage helps children in a number of ways.

Pediatric Massage is helpful for all ages of pediatric clients, including infants, toddlers, school age children in their pre-teen years, as well as adolescent teenagers. Each age group may benefit in different ways, but all age groups studied show consistent proof of benefit from Pediatric Massage Therapy. While Infant Massage is by far the most popular of these, Toddler Massage and massage for older pediatric clients is quickly gaining a foothold in our culture.

Massage For Pediatric Clients: Balancing Today's Busy Schedules With Relaxation and De-Stressing From Hidden Stressors

Children today lead more stressful lives than those of past generations. Anyone doubting the truth of this should take a careful look at their children's calendars and then try to compare their own daily and weekly schedule, when they were the same age. While being active and involved is essential for social, emotional, and cognitive growth, children do have their limits. Besides benefitting from regular sleep and careful eating, massage therapy for pediatric clients can help kids cope, aiding recovery from a fast-paced 21st century lifestyle.

Pediatric Massage Therapy is helpful with a number of conditions, from helping kids deal with stress to adjusting to change more easily. Therapeutic Massage should be individualized for each pediatric client's specific requirements and issues. Children suffer from stress overload just as grown-ups do. From the stress of test-taking, carrying a stack of books, and sitting all day in a chair at school, to dealing with family issues, parents quarreling, as well as dealing with peers, social standing, and even sometimes cliques, it's easy to see how children can lead silently tense and stressed lives. Massage for children can help unburden kids of their often overlooked stress.

Some stressors are physical, others emotional and psychological. Regardless of the cause, we tend to store stress in our shoulders and musculature. Because of this, a session of Pediatric Massage can help a child feel less stressed no matter what the initial cause. And kids are vocal; they will tell you how much better they feel afterwards! (View the studies here)

Pediatric Massage for student-athletes is a great training adjunct. There are some serious child-athletes out there in New Jersey and beyond! Pediatric Massage can help, whether for a dancer, gymnast, or even if your child plays softball, baseball, or soccer. From the anxiety of competing, to the stress of performing in front of a crowd, there is often a mental aspect to kids' stress even for purely physical activities like sports practice.

Pediatric Massage Therapists: A Caring, Communicative, and Experienced Massage Therapist Is Key

Pediatric Massage Therapy is not exactly the same as Massage Therapy for adult clients. While the same modalities and techniques are often employed for both children and adults, a pediatric massage therapist must work more closely with their client, paying more careful attention to pressure and technique, as children are more sensitive than adults, generally.

Pediatric Massage Therapists must excel at communicating intuitively with children, and have a patient, gentle, and caring manner, as kids appreciate these qualities in a therapist. Any Pediatric Massage Therapist without these qualities will not be of much help to their clients. An effective Pediatric Massage Therapist must understand the unique requirements, and challenges, of working with each pediatric age group.

Pediatric Massage Therapy: Studies Show Strong Results For a Number of Childhood Health Conditions

There are dozens of studies concerning Pediatric Massage and Health covering a wide range of health topics. Various studies from the US and abroad demonstrate that Pediatric Massage unquestionably helps reduce anxiety and tension in children. Relaxation is cited again and again in different studies as a major benefit. Pediatric Massage also helps with long-range improvements in cognitive and emotional development. , helping with children on the autistic spectrum, improving the cognitive performance of preschoolers, and helping kids to be less touch-averse, more extroverted, and have shortened latency to naptime. Sleep patterns, in general, were improved consistently in various studies.

Other benefits of Pediatric Massage include treating pediatric functional constipation, and gastrointestinal functioning. Studies show an increase in physical growth of infants, as well as an increase of immune system activity. increasing the weight of preterm infants is also cited. Healing and immune function were notably improved, according to the conclusions of the researchers conducting a different study.

Emotionality, sociability, and soothability temperament among infants all showed improvement in yet another study. Currently, most research is focused on the very young(Click here to view studies), but toddlers, pre-teens, and adolescents will all benefit from Pediatric Therapeutic Massage.(Click here for studies on toddlers, pre-teens, and adolescents) Massage has been shown to help with aggression issues among school aged children.
