no young children are still growing and if wanting a massage should have a light relaxing one. Pregnant women should not have deep tissue massage its better to be safe then sorry.

Shiatsu is ideal during any stage of pregnancy, from the first trimester through to the birth itself. It can even be an effective natural aid to bring on an overdue birth.

Babies and jung childern energy is very Yang because they are in stage of intence growth.Their bodies have not build up imbalances deeply in the body, therefore their energy respond very quickly and easily.
Working with babies involves more gentle stroking, with jung childern you can apply light pressure.Childern generaly dont like to lie for long time so working with jung childer incorporate play and movement into strech while working some energy lines as well.
