Why your children need massage?
Massage is a very useful procedure not only for adults, but also for children. In some countries it is recommended to have a baby massage, which is carried out during breastfeeding for up to one year. However, this does not mean that older children have no benefits out of massage. On the contrary, massage at an early age is the key to a healthy future of your child. From year to year, for many reasons, the number of absolutely healthy children is reducing, so children's massage is more relevant than ever.
Unfortunately, only few parents realize the need of massage for their children. The child learns the world through the senses, so touch is an essential element at an early age. After all, the touch of mother’s hands is an incomparable deep and angelic feeling for a baby. It is a feeling of trust and confidence.
So what exactly children's massage is good for?
1. Like many other procedures, children's massage strengthens the child's immune system.
2. It has a calming effect before bedtime. The child will sleep better and deeper.
3. Massage improves blood circulation.
4. It helps in developing the muscles of respiratory system.
5. It improves digestion.
6. It helps relieving colic.
7. During the massage, vitamin D is released in the skin, so the procedure is a good prevention of rickets.
For all the benefits of children's massage, like many other procedures, has its own contraindications. It is not recommended to massage during acute inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases and allergic rashes on the skin of a child. Before performing massage consult your doctor for possible contraindications.
Funny way of Children's massage:
Some children from a very young age need a whole body massage. It has to be painlessly so not to cause any fear in the child afterwards.
Children's massage is usually healing and could be stimulating or relaxing. Relaxing one is characterized by a more gentle, calm techniques. Stimulating massage involves a more intensive use of all main techniques.
At home, you can do a children’s entertaining massage, which is performed under a funny rhyme. Children usually like that way of rhyme very much. This is both a fun and a useful healing procedure. An example of children's playful massage:
“Rails, sleepers, sleepers, rails” - transverse and longitudinal lines are drawn alternately with the hands along the back;
"And train is coming now" - with the fingertips of one hand to draw along the line of the spinal column from the bottom up, imitating the train. The movement should be soft, stroking.
“Grains crumble from the last car” - the entire back is massaged with the fingertips;
“The hens came to peck” - soft “pecking” on the back with the tips of the fingers;
“The geese came to pinch” - slight nipping;
"And elephant comes to trample" - soft pressure fists all over the back;
“A little elephant ran after him” - quick chaotic pressure with knuckles;
“A squirrel came running and swept everything with its tail” - the final stroking of the back with palms.
Learning to make massage is more than ever helpful at any age. Proper use of it will bring great benefits to the body, will vitalise the muscles, relieve fatigue and relieve many health problems.
/Massage_therapy">massage therapy, or "the manual manipulation of soft tissue intended to promote health and well-being" for children and adolescents. Its goal is to reduce pain, anxiety, loneliness and fear when children are hospitalized or diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition. Pediatric massage therapy takes into consideration each child's individual physical development, cognitive development and health care needs.
Infant massage is a type of complementary and alternative treatment that uses massage therapy for human infants. This therapy has been practiced globally, and has been increasingly used in Western countries as a treatment for infants, though the scientific evidence supporting its use is limited. Research into the effectiveness of massage therapy on full term infants has found some tentative evidence for some benefits such as gross motor skills, fine motor skills and psychomotor development, though the evidence is not strong enough to recommend universally, and more research is needed. Research in pre-term infants and low birth weight infants have found weak evidence that massage might improve weight gain, but these results are based on possibly biased studies and therefore no recommendation can be made for universal use.
Research shows that massage therapy can ease both physical symptoms as well as emotional discomforts associated with pediatric medical conditions. The Touch Research Institute at the University of MiamiSchool of Medicine is a primary medical research provider for massage and touch therapy, including pediatric massage and infant massage. Pediatric massage also can help manage chronic conditions such as asthma by providing relaxation and reducing muscle tone in the chest, back and neck, nausea, constipation and muscle aches (myalgia).
Immediately after receiving massage, children with mild to moderate juvenile rheumatoid arthritis notice decreased anxiety and stress hormone (cortisol) levels. For young patients with autism or ADHD, pediatric massage has been found to reduce their aversion to touch, while increasing their ability to focus. Pediatric patients with cystic fibrosis report feeling less anxious, and their ability to breathe and pulmonary functions improved.
Like many other complementary and alternative medicine modalities, many research studies reporting benefit from pediatric massage have been small in scale and vulnerable to bias. Comprehensive medical reviews of the existing pediatric massage research reinforce the benefits, but ask for larger-scale, scientifically rigorous studies. Physicians are recommended to educate themselves and their patients about the empirically validated benefits and precautions associated with pediatric massage.
