Spa treatments for kids are a trending topic these days. Children massage has been a common practice in many cultures for ages ago because it helps to grow and develop a child. Not only adults, but children are also prone to stress, and massage is a wonderful stress-buster for them. For infants, the stroking of massage gives strength, motor coordination and self-confidence to prepare a newborn’s body for sitting, standing and walking. Please note that a 20-minute session max is a good rule to follow as longer sessions can be uncomfortable for a younger child.
In line with that, facial can also reduce emotional strain for the little souls. A facial treatment was meant only for adults to remove wrinkles. But the trend is shifting now. For youngsters, doing a regular visit for a facial treatment at the spa is considered as a lifestyle to keep up because they simply want to look attractive and feel confident around the opposite sex.
Basically, treatments for kids are no different than adults but they are less intensive in terms of product use, simpler and shorter in terms of duration. As parents, giving a free ticket to the spa can teach the young souls about etiquette and behaviour of their surroundings. Here we have compiled some of the kids’ treatments on the island for parents to consider.
