Can Children Benefit from Wellness Spa Massage?

by | Jul 25, 2022 | Broken Bow Spa

Relaxing with a wellness spa massage has many well-known benefits, ranging from decreased pain and anxiety to better quality sleep and a boosted immune system. Massages give you the opportunity to turn away from physical and mental stressors to instead focus on relaxation and enjoy rejuvenation. Because anyone can experience those stressors, you may wonder if your child can benefit from massage therapy.

A visit to an experienced massage therapist benefits people of all ages. For example, if your children enjoy sports and other physical activities, a trip to a wellness day spa can ease sore muscles and help with any uncomfortable minor injuries. If your children have trouble sleeping, the movements and motions in massage can calm their minds and naturally balance their hormones, leading to a better quality of sleep. This improved sleep and increased relaxation can also improve their concentration, potentially helping with their academic performances.

 

What to Know Before Scheduling a Wellness Spa Massage for Your Child

Before you schedule your child’s visit to a harmony day spa, it is important to do some research to ensure that it is the best experience possible.

 

Reach Out to the Wellness Day Spa

A massage therapist will use specific techniques, pressures, and movements to adapt a massage for a child client. They may also use a different massage table or products that are designed for more sensitive skin. As such, before scheduling a massage, reach out to the spa to make sure that they accept children as clients.

Some spas may take clients at any age, while others may only accept adults. For the spas that do accept children as clients, the child may need to be over a certain age, such as their early teens. Some spas may also require that a parent or guardian is present during the massage. Checking in first will ensure that your child can enjoy their massage and that the massage therapist has the best practices prepared for your child.

 

Reach Out to Your Child’s Doctor

If you are interested in scheduling a massage for your child to help with muscle tension, frequent migraines, anxiety, or any other physical and mental symptoms and conditions, it may be best to first discuss this with your child’s doctor. In addition to helping you determine if massage therapy is right for your child, the doctor may be able to help you decide which specific treatment is best based on your child’s needs.
