When someone chimes in with a:
"Hi Heather, my 10 year old has been saving her money and she wants to set up a massage. She mentioned that you might allow her to do a 45 minute instead of 30 because she likes deep tissue. Can we set up a time and how much will it be?
Also, would you happen to have any spots for her mom and I too?"
How can we not agree?? Too sweet!!

TIP: Small children don't often need 60 minutes for a full body session. 15 minutes on the head, neck and back can often be sufficient, while 30 minutes for some kids is enough for the whole body! Those in their preteens and teens may need longer sessions, depending upon their goals or needs.
IMPORTANT: Massage therapy is not intended to replace regular medical care. Please ensure your child continues to see their general physician or counselor for medical or mental health issues. If you don't have anyone, we'd be happy to refer you. We do not diagnose, prescribe, treat or cure illness or disease. Acute or contagious illness is contraindicated for massage therapy.

We know, massage therapy feels SO good, especially when we are under stress or in are pain! And we always hate turning people away. Yet, sometimes there are conditions that are contraindicated (inadvisable) for massage for health and safety reasons. This is certainly not an extensive list, and there are many more conditions that are at least partially contraindicated. If you are suffering from any malady or condition that you fail to inform your therapist of, you could be putting yourself, your therapist, or other patrons health or lives at risk. It is CRITICAL you communicate an accurate health status with your therapist. Massage therapy not only has a local effect on the tissues being treated, but also can have profound reflexive and systemic effects via the nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, myofascial, skeletal and other body systems. Stay safe! Inform your therapist upon the first visit, and every visit thereafter of current and recent / past health events. ❎👍💚
While it's important for the human heart to gain the blessings that come with having a generous, helpful spirit, in a world where many are often overextended and run down, we also need to be able to say "no" when needed. For so many who are naturally "givers" this might be a helpful little reminder as you contemplate you're next decision. 🙏💙
