AMTA 2012 National Convention | Raleigh, North Carolina | October 3–6
Join Ms. Allen for two (2) very special Pediatric Massage presentations highlighting: “Autism & ADD/ADHD” & “Cerebral Palsy“
The cost of a child’s lifelong care can be reduced by as much as two-thirds, when appropriate interventions are put in place, such as the therapeutic intervention of pediatric massage therapy.
CP is a non-progressive disease with no cure. Research has demonstrated that when pediatric massage therapy is applied benefits include; reduced spasticity, less rigid muscle tone, and improved fine and gross motor functioning.
These findings suggest that massage therapy is effective and should be considered as an early intervention therapy for children affected by Cerebral Palsy.
Canadian Massage Conference 2012 | Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada | October 12, 13 and 14
Ms. Allen will present “A Special Presentation on Pediatric Massage Therapy”
To a child who has been hospitalized, or diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition, their symptoms are often accompanied by pain, anxiety, loneliness and fear. So it only makes sense that healthcare staff and medical facilities are looking to pediatric massage as treatment for some of these symptoms.
