Holistic Therapy

Massage is a natural and enjoyable therapy with no negative side effects.  It can be either a relaxing or stimulating experience.  It brings many therapeutic benefits to children who have a wide range of disabilities and health problems.  

We offer one-to-one massage therapy sessions for our children within the school environment and also in our residential setting.
