Benefits of massage therapy, tuina and shiatsu for kids

IMG_0400

Shiatsu & Acupressure

Massage therapy when combined with Chinese medical massage (tuina) and Japanese bodywork shiatsu makes for a powerful healing modality that can help kids of all ages with a wide range of medical conditions. Children generally love massage and respond almost immediately, feeling more relaxed in their bodies, and more emotionally balanced.

The method

Katya’s pediatric massage is a mix of Swedish massage, craniosacral therapy, tuina, shiatsu, cupping therapy, and acupressure. Each treatment plan is individually tailored to each child’s ailments and needs.
