Teaching children ways to turn stress into calm, while nurturing love is an incredible gift that you can give your child !

‚ÄčChildren experience stress just as adults do. They may experience stress as early as their time in utero when they are exposed to their mothers stress hormones. Other things that may cause stress in children and teens are teething, separation anxiety, poor nutrition, rushed development, being over scheduled, environmental toxins, start of a new school, a move, birth of a sibling, divorce of parents, loud noises, being in large crowds, chaotic home life, stressed parents, exposure to adult conversation/news, lack of sleep, academic pressure, lack of outdoor time and movement, social pressure, lack of love, or being touch deprived. 

Stress may manifest as irritibility, constipation, headaches, stomachaches, nightmares, bedwetting, anxiety, poor memory, focus or comprehension, school refusal or difficulty sleeping.


It is critical to reduce stress hormones because they feed viruses, weaken the immune system, cause fatigue, anxiety and depression, increase inflammation, reduces the ability for the body to detox, makes learning challenging, and increases blood pressure. 


Research shows that children who receive massage on regular basis may show such things as reduced stress and anxiety, feel happier and more relaxed, be more cooperative, have improved immune system, sleep better, improved their memory, focus and concentration, improved self esteem, be less aggressive and less hyperactive, show less touch adversion, and experience bonding and nurturing love, the foundation of every healthy and happy parent/child relationship.
