While visiting El Segundo, nearby is the beautiful Manhattan Beach! The wide sandy beach is lined with expensive beachfront homes. Gorgeous bodies abound, seemingly even more here than in other Southern California beach towns. The further you stray from the pier, the less populated the beach is. The northern section is called El Porto Beach. To the south lies Hermosa Beach.
The South Bay Bicycle Trail stretches along the back of the sand, extending 22 miles from Will Rogers State Beach in the north to Torrance Beach in the south. There is also a pedestrian walkway called the Strand where you can enjoy the "sights" as you take a leisurely stroll or burn calories while walking.
The Pier, located at the foot of Manhattan Beach Boulevard, you’ll see lots people playing volleyball in the sand. Swimming and surfing are popular activities here as at most Southern California beaches. The pier itself has a small marine life aquarium, fishing and bike racks.
The place for shopping is Manhattan Avenue and Manhattan Beach Boulevard. Both are lined with lots of fun shops and places to eat.

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.
