At Thrive, each treatment is custom tailored to the client and may vary in the techniques used depending on your needs and requests.

Pediatric Massage

Pediatric massage can look like a traditional massage on the table with oil, but it can also look very different. Each child gets to choose their treatment from pressure, music, which body regions, and clothing. Depending on the age and cognition of the child or adolescent depends on the techniques used. Sensory play, massage stories or songs are always great tools for children that don't like to sit still.

Infant Massage Classes

Infant massage classes are structured for infants 3 weeks to 3 years old. We like to build healthy habits as early as possible. Each class session is about 45-60 minutes long, this includes going over any concerns you may have about your infants health and finding the best treatment plan for them. In 4 classes we feel confident that you will come away feeling like you're part of your infants healthcare team.

Please contact us if you’d like to be apart of the class.
