We’ve ordered a massage table to perform the full body massage but until then we’ve been perform the facial massage and a few relaxing pressure points on his arm. So far so good as in the main Jake, our son, has let us perform the routine and seems to enjoy it and has an almost calming influence on him.
This morning I had to tickle him and distract him a few times as he wanted to get up and play with his toys but managed to get it done without too much fuss. Far too early to report any benefits but at least he’s letting us do it. The big test will come the weekend when we have to massage the top of his head and neck. This is a very sensitive area for him and could take awhile for him to accept.
If you’re interested there’s a demo video of the head massage that we’re performing every morning, it only takes five minutes so can easily be built into the morning routine before school.
