Children (including teens & babies):
Massage therapy is good for children with ADHD; Downs Syndrome, etc. Massage therapy helps to promote healthy sleep habits in children.
Massage is, also, great for athletic teenagers, as well as for the honor roll student who spends many hours at the computer and reading books. Both the time at the computer and reading causes the child to raise his/her head and shoulders forward, causing posture and muscular tension.
In babies, massage therapy is good for calmness, circulation issues, and tender loving care. In hospitals, while babies are waiting to be adopted, massage is used regularly nurturing care and regular touch.
