Tina Allen | World Masage Conference

Liddle Kidz Founder, Tina Allen, presents during the AMTA 2012 National Convention | Raleigh, North Carolina | October 3–6

 

Join Ms. Allen, Friday, October 5th  for two (2) very special Pediatric Massage presentations highlighting:

**Cerebral Palsy | 1:30pm – 5:30pm**

 

=======================================================

Pediatric Massage: Highlighting Autism & ADD/ADHD | 8am – 12pm

Children are diagnosed at an ever growing rate with one of many developmental disorders that include autism, and ADD/ADHD.

Currently, 1 in every 88 children ages 3 -17 years in the United States is estimated to have an autism spectrum disorder.

The cost of a child’s lifelong care can be reduced by as much as two-thirds, when appropriate interventions are put in place, such as the therapeutic intervention of pediatric massage therapy.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate pediatric massage and nurturing touch techniques.
     
  • Describe many benefits of pediatric massage for children affected by ASD and relevant research facts.
     
  • Describe indications for, and where to use, pediatric massage.
     
  • Describe information on how to receive training in pediatric massage therapy and specialize in working with children affected by ASD.
     

=======================================================

Pediatric Massage: Highlighting Cerebral Palsy | 1:30pm – 5:30pm

Cerebral Palsy (CP) comes in different forms and in essence different severities.

CP is a non-progressive disease with no cure.  Research has demonstrated that when pediatric massage therapy is applied benefits include; reduced spasticity, less rigid muscle tone, and improved fine and gross motor functioning.

These findings suggest that massage therapy is effective and should be considered as an early intervention therapy for children affected by Cerebral Palsy..

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate pediatric massage and nurturing touch techniques.
     
  • Describe many benefits of pediatric massage for children affected by Cerebral Palsy and relevant research facts.
     
  • Describe indications for, and where to use, pediatric massage.
     
  • Describe information on how to receive training in pediatric massage therapy and specialize in working with children affected by Cerebral Palsy.

About the AMTA Convention:

Like its membership, the association’s annual national convention grew in size and importance.  From the handful of people who formed the association at its first convention in 1943, attendance grew to an all-time high in 2009 of 1,800, with more than 90 exhibitors and 25 continuing education presenters.
