Hi, I would like to ask if Thai Massage is also suitable for small children? If  yes, are there any negative or important to know things about it (except general ones that apply to every massage)?

I will be glad to see your answers! Smile

I addressed this in the other forum. Maybe someone else has more input on this.

According to plenty of posts in this forum, Thai Massage can be and is done on even quite young children. However for the purpose of learning the techniques in this course, they are not ideal candidates since they do not reflect your average client. There is less body resistance due to their small size, less useful feedback, and many stretches are not suited or useful for them. However I believe strongly that massaging your children is not only very beneficial, but it is also a great way of interacting with them. It can be a lot of fun.
