I was just reading an article on MassageTherapy.com in which Tiffany Field, Ph.D., of the Touch Research Institute (TRI) in Miami, Fla. was quoted as saying, “Every child, no matter the age, should be massaged at bedtime on a regular basis.” We know touch is the first sense to develop in humans and it is vital to our health and well-being. The article
on MassageTherapy.com also explains that, “Touch is the first sense to develop in humans. It is essential to our health and well-being. Babies have been known to fail to thrive and even die without an adequate amount of physical contact.”
So I was excited to see this new book released called, “A Modern Day Guide to Massage for Children” by Tina Allen. Ms. Allen is an award winning author, international lecturer and authority on pediatric massage. This beautifully illustrated book provides families and professionals an easy to follow guide to incorporating nurturing touch into the lives of children. Ms. Allen managed the nation9s first comprehensive pediatric massage program at Children9s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), where she trained volunteer massage therapists and medical professionals to work with hospitalized Rehabilitation patients, medically complex infants in the Center for Newborn and Infant Critical Care (CNICC), Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Children with Retinoblastoma, Spina Bifida and Cerebral Palsy. She is currently consulting on the development of comprehensive pediatric massage programs for The Mayo Clinic, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Hasbro Children9s Hospital, Connecticut Children9s Medical Center, Shriner9s Hospital and Sutton Children9s Medical Center.
