Secure and modest draping and gentle confidence initiate our younger clients in caring for themselves.  Massage starts supine (face up) on arms, legs and neck, building trust and a better understanding of what massage is all about. If youth is comfortable with the techniques, a back massage will also be included. Parent or legal guardian helps child complete intake form and collaborates with child and therapist in establishing goals for the massage service.
