What is a Child's/Minor's Massage?
This is a massage is for children or minors, typically this type of massage is from the ages of 2-17. It is defined as the manipulation of soft tissue for the intent of promoting the health and well being of children or minors. It is often referred to as Pediatric Massage. When children are younger they may not be able to sit for very long, so they may need a shorter amount of time. For teenagers most likely they can easily handle a 50-60 minute massage. To be honest it depends on the teenager and what they can handle. As far as pressure, it is whatever preference in pressure that the child or minor wants. So if they prefer light, medium, or hard pressure. For younger children light to medium pressure. For teenagers if they like hard pressure it's ok as long as they don't feel any pain. A legal guardian must sign permission for their child or minor to receive a massage. Children must have a legal guardian or parent in the room with them during the massage. A teenager/minor can choose to have or not have a parent or legal guardian in the room with them.
