I love working with children and have all my life. I have received extensive additional advanced certifications to specialize to do safe appropriate massage work with children in various settings and with various things going on as well as healthy kids. I always include time at the beginning for assessment and goal setting and at the end to assessment, teaching caregiver home massage techniques, and discussing other self care tools.
As an Advanced Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist (CPMTII), through Liddle Kidz Foundation, I am trained to work in an effective, age appropriate manner that works with your kids development, health care considerations, existing treatments, and goals. I always work with parents/guardians present and with doctor approval when needed. I work with healthy kids and I have been further trained to work with kids who fight cancer, kids who have experienced trauma, peer to peer massage through a program called kidz in contact and kids who are in the hospital as part of a hospital based program. I have also completed MFR 1 and Pediatric MFR with John F Barnes.
