Research suggests today's young children are suffering from 'deep anxiety' about modern life. From the pressures of continuous school tests and exams to increased concerns about body image, social acceptability and bullying, more children are showing signs of stress and depression.
This pioneering book provides parents with user-friendly massage routines and simple techniques to help ease their child's stresses and combat a wide range of common ailments, from coughs and colds and headaches to eczema, stomach ache and sleep problems.
Expert practitioner Mary Atkinson gives a thorough overview of how massage works and the rewarding benefits it can bring. There is also a special chapter dedicated to showing parents how to arm their child with a toolkit of self-help treatments for use at school or on the move.
