Pediatric Massage Singapore

Pediatric Massage Singapore

Pediatric massage is a form of external therapy to stimulate specific acupuncture points or areas for treating and preventing pediatric diseases in children. It also helps to stimulate growth and brain development in children.

During a pediatric massage session, the physician uses specialized techniques and pressure points that are particularly beneficial for children. It works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians and groups of muscles or nerves to remove blockages that prevent the free flow or circulation of qi and blood.

Benefits Of Pediatric Massage Singapore

Pediatric massage is performed according to the characteristics of children's physiology and pathology. The effects of the treatment for common pediatric diseases such as the respiratory system and digestive system are pronounced. Other than that, it is also suitable for illnesses like flu, fever, cough, stomach ache, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, frequent bedwetting, night crying, stiff neck, short sightedness.

Pediatric massage also improves overall health by strengthening the child's immune system. The child is less lethargic and has a better appetite. In turn, this promotes growth in children and boosts their brain power.
Current findings provide varying levels of evidence for the benefits of pediatric massage in children who have diverse medical conditions, with anxiety reduction showing the strongest effect.

(Reference: Beider S, Mahrer NE, Gold Jl. Pediatric massage therapy: an overview for clinicians. Pediatr Clin North Am (J). 2007; 54(6):1025-41.)

Overall, pediatric massage is gentle, safe and without side effects.

What to expect in a session of Pediatric massage singapore

Before the massage, a diagnosis will be done and your child's history, including physical traumas, medication, past surgeries and lifestyle will be recorded.
Typically before the start of the session, the child will be required to expose the affected parts of the body. A towel will be used to cover these parts to prevent your child from catching a cold.
