Your kids also need massage

It’s summer! Your kids are running about! Each of them going in opposite directions. Racing towards a different activity or sport.

All of this motion is great summer fun.

But there are also the accompanying bumps, twists and falls to contend with.

The Vancouver-based Canadian Institutes of Health Research Team in Child & Youth Injury Prevention note that, “Sport and recreation injuries are a significant health problem in Canada, and leading cause of injury requiring medical attention among adolescents.”

Their background information on sport injury study goes on to say that, “Sport injuries account for approximately 50% of all injury to secondary school students, with the medically treated injury rate for high school (HS) (ages 14 - 18) and junior high school (JHS) students (ages 11-14) being 40 and 30 injuries/100student/year respectively.”

At Academy Massage Therapy, we have targeted massage treatments for children and youth who have sports and recreation related needs.

Parents/guardians and their children under the age of 12 are in the same room for the child’s treatment sessions. In fact, the parent and the child may also both receive treatments are the same time!

Talk to us about our preventative and healing therapies provided by our Registered Massage Therapists (RMT).

Please note, most insurance plans include coverage for children.
