The Power of Children Massage

                             When Aston  was asked what he would have as a Gift, anything he wanted, he asked for a MASSAGE. His mom has been educating him about massage. At 3 years old, Aston had difficulties with his bowel movement. I was able to teach his mom about abdomen massage and reflexology techniques. Massage has helped Aston. Aston is now 5 and he is in love with massage. Mommy is empowered by the fact that she is not only helping her son feel better and healthier (without medication) but also creating bonding and stronger relationship through massages.

Axelsons Gymnastika Institute have conducted a study involving 150 preschool children. Among other things, this study clearly shows that with massage: level of aggression, anxiety and stress are lower; children function better in group; and psychosomatic illnesses are fewer.
