We are excited to bring the Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist Course (CPMT) with a special focus on pediatric palliative care to Austin, Texas.
**Attendees are by invitation only**
This Accredited 2-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen.
This special pediatric massage certification focusing on the use of massage therapy for children in hospice care is a private training to be held at Dell Children’s Medical Center for those planning to volunteer with the Each One Counts Foundation.
Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, is the only dedicated freestanding pediatric facility in the region. Kids are different and so is Dell Children’s. Children are not small adults. They have unique healthcare needs. Statistics show that children heal faster when treated in a children’s hospital. At Dell Children’s, they treat each of their patients with extra care, time, monitoring and specialized pediatric medical skills and compassion.
The Liddle Kidz Foundation is proud to partner with Each One Counts Foundation to bring the nurturing benefits of touch to children in hospice and palliative care. Our goal is to provide education and support to those who undertake a volunteer commitment of service to the Each Counts Foundation.
Our first successful volunteer event was held at Madison Square Gardens in October 2011. We are excited to have new professional volunteers using nurturing touch to comfort children in hospice and palliative care.
Volunteer service may be completed in a number of ways including; providing nurturing touch to children with life limited expectancy in hospice, healthcare and home settings, educating their families in how to provide nurturing touch or a variety of other valuable services that will bring joy and comfort to these children.
If you are a massage therapist or other healthcare provider, who is licensed to touch, and you wish to volunteer to bring nurturing care to children and their families, please contact us to learn more about becoming part of this important work. Volunteer trainings and opportunities are provided nationwide.
“Holding a sick child’s and when they are considerable untouchable, communicates that they matter!”!
Finally, an accredited pediatric massage certification program for healthcare professionals who wish to expand their practice by providing massage therapy and nurturing touch for pediatric clients. The Liddle Kidz Foundation Certification course is an intense, fun and effective way to master the core skills of pediatric massage.
Founded by master teacher and philanthropist Tina Allen, the Liddle Kidz Foundation offers a new, comprehensive, research based training course and teaches students what they really need to know to provide pediatric massage.
Any experienced professional will tell you that there is a world of difference between learning how to massage a child from a book or DVD, and knowing how to provide the best care to meet a child’s needs, however, there are few opportunities to learn the skills they really need from a working healthcare professional who has provided pediatric massage education throughout the world.
As a CPMT, you have the special opportunity to provide specialized care through touch therapy to children who need it most.
