Liddle Kidz™ Massage for Children | Families

About the Trainer | Tuition & Registration | Training Includes | Who Should Attend

Liddle Kidz™ Massage for Children introduces you and your child to fun loving nurturing interaction through healthy, developmentally appropriate touch. Our Liddle Kidz™ Massage for Children course incorporates movement games, songs, stories and stimulating activities which can help introduce massage and nurturing touch to your child. During the course we will teach you to use child and family friendly activities to help you increase the bond and interaction you share with your child.

We will show you many ways of engaging your child through the use of fun loving touch. Turning this loving activity into an innovative learning experience as well, because we believe children learn more when learning is fun.

We understand that children have different physical, emotional and developmental needs than adults, which is why we have developed this children’s massage course with early childhood development considerations in mind. During this course you will learn to massage and interact with your child using age appropriate activities that stimulate your child’s development and improve the quality of the time you spend with your family.

Children require tactile stimulation through a variety of sources in order to develop their body, mind and spirit. Throughout this massage course we will help you find ways of increasing tactile stimulation and exploration experiences for your child. In addition to physical experiential activities, calming and relaxing touch is also introduced through hands on massage therapy and massage stories.

Developed with a toddler’s language level in mind, storytelling and songs are used to connect with and engage children. Massage is not done to children in this course, but rather together with your child. By learning to appropriately ask permission to touch, you’ll encourage children to develop healthy boundaries and become more secure as they grow older.
