Why adolescents massage?
Those of you that have teenagers know that we’re currently in very stressful times that can affect your child not only mentally but physically. What I hear from parents is that their child has been sitting on a laptop in bed, hunched over for hours looking down or on their ipad or mobile and has been complaining of neck, upper back and other pains. Back in my day, we had desks to keep all our school books in, Nowadays children are carrying extremely heavy bags containing all their books around with them all day. I have successfully treated many adolescents experiencing exam stress too. Many students studying for their GCSEs or A levels + come to me as it’s all become a bit much!
Benefits of adolescents massage include:
- Boosting childs immune system
- Easing tense/stressed muscles
- Reducing headaches
NOTE: ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 16 HAS TO HAVE THEIR PARENTS CONSENT TO TREATMENT AND THEIR PARENT NEEDS TO BE PRESENT. FOR UNDER 18’S, PARENTS CONSENT IS ALSO REQUIRED. I AM NO LONGER THERE, BUT AT THE DISABILITY FOUNDATION, WHERE I WORKED FOR 14 YEARS, I WAS FULLY DBS CHECKED.
