Children and Older People

Children and older people can benefit greatly from remedial massage therapy and treatments are tailored to individual needs.



Children who compete regularly in sport can benefit from massage therapy in the same way as adult athletes.  Massage can help them to recover between training sessions and to rehabilitate after injury.  Children also tend be susceptible to various conditions that massage can help to relieve the symptoms of.  These include:


  • Severs Disease


  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease


  • Patellar Tendonitis


  • Tension in the shins, calves and thighs brought on by growing pains


Older People


Older people can benefit from massage therapy in the same way as everyone else and where necessary the treatment can be carried out in a seated position and fully clothed.  Some of the benefits of massage for older people include:


  • Enhancing circulation and muscle tone


  • Relieving aches and pains brought on by medical conditions or lack of mobility


  • Reducing stress levels and improving feelings of confidence and well being
