Paediatric Massage

Children need healthy, therapeutic touch just as much as they need air to breathe and water to drink. Pediatric massage greatly benefits children of all ages, from infant all the way to the pre-teen years. At Century Health, we provide infant and pediatric massage in a safe and nurturing environment. Verbal or non-verbal, your child’s consent to treatment is very important to us. Even though we require parental consent to treatment, we also look for hints and clues in body language as to how your child might be feeling that day. It is important for us to respect your child’s decisions and allow them to feel comfort and trust. Massage is a great way to help calm and relax your child and it also teaches them about safe and positive touch.

*15 and 30 minute treatment sessions are available. Also ask about a one hour infant massage instruction session, which includes a 15 minute treatment.
