News release from Tranquil Touch Spa:
Tranquil Touch Spa Offering Back to School Specials
Massage Proven to Help Kids Succeed and Manage Stress Better
Tranquil Touch Spa, Fort Wayne, Indiana, is offering Back-to-School savings on children’s treatments during the month of August. Treatments include massage therapy, facials, and foot treatments, as well as manicures and pedicures. “Enjoy a $5 discount on any of our kid’s treatments,” says Melinda Smith, owner of Tranquil Touch Spa. “Kids love the pampering and benefit from touch just as much as adults do.”
Massage for children offers a variety of health benefits. Touch stimulates the body in positive ways to help it grow and develop. Massage is beneficial at any age but because children are still developing it can be especially helpful for them. Infants also respond well to massage.
Massage reduces stress hormone levels, which, in turn, reduces feelings of anxiety and contributes to a healthier immune system. The immune system fights illnesses by defending the body against toxins, parasites, bacteria, microbes, pathogens and viruses. Massage, due to its relaxing effect, has also been found to reduce asthma symptoms in children and help them adhere to a sometimes painful diabetes treatment program.
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 has also been attributed to the stimulation of cognitive development. The International Journal of Neuroscience reported that massage improved function in the brain, resulting in increased alertness as well as speed and accuracy during math problems.
August is the perfect time to take advantage of special savings on all kid’s treatments – and help your child in the process. For more information, contact Tranquil Touch Spa, 260.969.7977 or.
