The Brown University, USA, has conducted various studies with children and adolescents with additional needs. Their findings indicate that massage can be viewed as effective complementary therapy for asthma, autism, severe burns, cancer, dermatitis, diabetes, bulimia, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and psychiatric problems including depression and conduct disorder.
IMIS believes that massage therapy may also show positive results with infants suffering from foetal alcohol syndrome, hyper or hypo tone infants, paralysis, ADD, blindness, deafness, multiple handicaps, amputation, epilepsy, deformities, and infants suffering from abuse.
Infant massage may also help terminally ill infants and their families by providing a means to communicate their love through touch. IMIS believes that massage for terminally ill infants is particularly beneficial to the parents providing them with something positive they can do for their child during a time where there is little else they can do to help or bond with their child in the short time provided.
Instructors are informed on appropriate alterations to massage techniques for various special needs.
