Webinar: Introduction to Pediatric Touch Therapy
Children require tactile stimulation in order to fully develop their body, mind, and spirit. While massage therapy is beneficial, children have very different physical, emotional, and developmental needs than those of adults, and it's vitally important to understand those unique needs. In this entertaining presentation, you'll learn not just how important massage is for children, but also how to use touch therapy to interact with children using age-appropriate activities, storytelling, songs, and rhymes that provide appropriate stimulation opportunities.
