Sports Massage

Adolescent Massage

One question we get often is, how old does our child need to be? Our youngest client was three days old at the time of the session. We work with adolescents in little ledges up to Varsity Sports.

You, their Guardian, will remain with them at all times!

Does your child have a ‘funny’ walk? Their bones grow faster than their muscles. This causes discomfort when walking. You can learn how to help their body heal. Your child will walk comfortably and you will have a sense of well-being. We work with their scale of comfort.
