When thinking about massage therapy, one may think that only adults get massages. However, little kids can also get massages, if the need arises. You might wonder how the need for a massage would arise in a young person.
The fact is that any child who has undergone trauma or suffered an injury which has led to pain and discomfort can get a massage to help alleviate the symptoms. Kids don’t take well to discomfort and are likely to get cranky and difficult to handle. In this situation, it would be difficult for their parents, and even the medical staff attending them, to comprehend their needs and provide the right solution.
Pediatric massage is about more than just helping children deal with the symptoms of the conditions they are suffering. The therapy can help children combat loneliness and fear, as well as the anxiety they face in the aftermath of medical treatments.
This way, massage therapists can help the children deal with the emotional trauma of the circumstances, while taking care of the physical problems they are going through. Pediatric massage therapy can not only help children live comfortably, but may also help cure certain medical conditions.
A great example of this is the effect the massage had on some children suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Their anxiety vanished and their stress hormones got under control after they underwent massage therapy.
Moreover, young children suffering from autism can also be treated through pediatric massage therapy. Their mental condition could improve and they may be able to concentrate better. Also, any children suffering from breathing related disorders may experience improvement in their breathing pattern.
Needless to say, performing a massage on a child poses different challenges for the massage therapist. You have to keep in mind the need of the child the massage is being performed on. For one, the pressure applied on the body of children has to be moderate as compared to the normal massage.
If you are looking to work with pediatric patients you should continue receiving training and education in the field. That is the only way they would be able to perform pediatric massages in the best way possible.

Benefits of Pediatric Modalities
LET'S TALK ABOUT STRESS RELIEF
Who doesn't want to reduce the stress in their life? Stress relief is key to finding the balance of a healthy lifestyle. Even a single massage session has been shown to significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels - all of which help reduce daily stress.
LET'S FORCE THE ISSUE...OF RELAXATION
How often and how long are you actually able to disconnect from life? Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode - an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.
SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE...OF YOUR POSTURE
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can help be corrected by relaxation. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
BREATHE IN. BREATHE DEEPLY.
One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
