    CALL US and DO NOT come to class if:

    Our first form of communication, even in the womb, is touch. Nicknamed the “mother of all senses”, touch is the most developed sense at birth. It is through touch that parents and children connect most. Touch therapy for Infants is very nourishing for the entire physical and developmental body systems.

    If your child is no longer an infant, our Massage Therapist can organize a session customized to your personal goals and needs of your child. Seeking help for children with medical concerns requires the experienced hands of a Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist/Registered Massage Therapist.

    Sunstone Registered Massage can work with the child directly in the presence of the caregivers. The parents/caregivers will be included in the treatment sessions and taught methods and techniques to continue massage when the Therapist is not there.

    There are various methods that make providing massage to children easier. The approach will be different for each child. The Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist has been trained in providing an approach that is respectful and patient, that meets the child at their level and honors their boundaries.

    Sunstone Registered Massage understands the sensitive nature of working with children. Professional boundaries, safety guidelines, infection control and patient privacy will be maintained at all times.
