Pediatric Massage (Massage for Children between 5- 10 years old) - According to Early Child Development and Care, preschoolers performed better on an IQ test following a 15-minute massage than they did from reading books.
The International Journal of Neuroscience reported that massage for children improve function in the brain, resulting in increasing alertness as well as speed and accuracy during math problems.
Children are developing their motor (movement) skills as they grow. Massage helps ease tension and pain in developing muscles that make motor skills possible. A study by the University of Miami indicates that massage improved motor function in children with Down syndrome, and the Journal of Pediatric Psychology reports that massage improved motor ability in children infected with HIV.
Massage reduces stress hormone levels and blood glucose levels. According to Maria Hernandez-Reif, a researcher at the Touch Research Institute, lower stress hormones not only reduce feelings of anxiety but contribute to a healthier immune system. The immune system fights illnesses by defending the body against toxins, parasites, bacteria, microbes, pathogens and viruses. Due to its relaxing effect, massage has been found to reduce asthma symptoms in children and help them adhere to a sometimes-painful diabetes treatment program.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
The lymphatic system plays a central role in the removal of metabolic waste. When the lymphatic flow is interrupted or becomes sluggish through lack of hydration, poor diet or inactivity, all other body systems are affected negatively. The positive effects of this type of massage therapy range from reduced fluid retention to better pain management and an increased feeling of well-being.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage(MLD) strokes are gentle, light-touch, noninvasive technique, known as the “stationary circle”, “pump”, rotary” and “scoop” - treatment to re-route the flow of stagnated lymphatic fluid around blocked areas into more centrally located healthy lymphatic vessels, which will drain into the venous system, and promote a healthier immune system.
Why Lymphatic Flow Stagnates.
Compared to traditional massage, the pressure applied with manual lymph drainage is much lower in intensity.
with liposuction or Smart-lipo, especially in the abdominal area and even more so if combined with other body contouring procedures (such as fat injections for what is popularly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift). This is normal right after your procedure. This post-surgical lymphedema is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (instrument that sucks out the fat) moving under the skin. Channels are formed by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the tissue also becomes swollen. Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels, reducing the swelling and discomfort. Without Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD) the inflammation can evolve into fibrosis (a permanent hardening of the tissue) or a seroma (pocket of serum) can form. Many doctors prescribe Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy after liposuction, Smart lipo or any other esthetic procedure, to make sure their patients get the best possible results. There are many different things that can influence healing. Some patients get 6-8 treatments post-operatively and that is enough; especially if the only area of liposuction was the legs, knees, or flanks. People getting liposuction to the abdomen often find they require up to 12 sessions. Occasionally a client will need more than 12, especially if they had “Smart-lipo”. Also, patients who get multiple procedures at the same time (lipo and a tummy tuck, or lipo and a buttock enhancement…Brazilian Butt Lift) may need more sessions than someone who only gets one procedure. MLD is the only away to avoid the lumps and bumps caused by the esthetics procedure.
Smooth skin after surgery procedure, are results of Manual Lymphatic Drainage achievements.
Bruises are an accumulation of cellular debris and old red blood cells in the tissue. Lymph Drainage Therapy greatly reduces healing time for bruises by cleansing the extracellular spaces where these substances are trapped.

Fascia works as web protection band, that wraps our body’s muscles; tendons; bones; ligaments and tissues.
This protective band is made of collagen fibers and elastin.
The band also called fascia, is dynamic, meaning that it responds to forces, either internal or external and resists these forces to protect the area that it covers.
When you injured or experience acute or chronic inflammation in an area, you can develop scar tissue on the fascia.
Myofascial release massage focuses on breaking up the hardened fascia to restore a healthy level of flexibility and range of motion. The process takes time, and a specific area can be focused on for over 15 minutes.
The primary benefit of myofascial release is to decrease pain during movements.
