Concussion Treatment and SFT Fascia Therapy for Kids
Develop the right training program with SFT how to increase power, strength and balance with the appropriate rest and recovery that is essential to making gains in sport.
What to Expect from SFT Manual Therapy
Benefits of Fascia Treatment for Children:
- Improves Mobility and Flexibility: Fascia treatment can help young children improve their mobility and flexibility. By addressing restrictions in the fascial tissue, children can experience a greater range of motion, which is essential for their growing bodies.
- Enhances Postural Development: Regular fascia treatments can support the proper development of posture in children. This is particularly important as they grow and develop, helping to prevent the onset of chronic postural issues.
- Reduces Pain and Discomfort: Children experiencing growing pains or discomfort due to tight fascia can benefit from these treatments, which can alleviate pain by releasing tension and restoring balance in the body’s connective tissues.
- Promotes Healing and Recovery: For children who are active or involved in sports, fascia treatment can be an effective way to promote recovery from injuries and enhance overall healing processes.
- Supports Emotional Well-being: Fascia treatment can be a soothing experience, potentially reducing stress and anxiety levels in children. The gentle manipulation of fascial tissue can induce relaxation and a sense of well-being.
Benefits of Supporting Children Improve Movement and Balance:
- Prevents Injuries: Regular consultation and treatment can help identify balance issues early on, which can prevent falls and related injuries, keeping children safer as they explore and play.
- Builds Confidence: By addressing balance issues, children can gain more confidence in their physical abilities. As their balance improves, so does their confidence in participating in various activities.
- Enhances Coordination: Treatment focused on balance can improve a child’s coordination. This can have a positive impact on their ability to engage in sports and other activities requiring fine motor skills.
- Improves Cognitive Function: Balance is closely linked to cognitive development. By supporting children with balance issues, you may also be contributing to better concentration and learning outcomes.
- Encourages Physical Activity: Children with improved balance and coordination are more likely to participate in physical activities, which is essential for healthy growth and preventing childhood obesity.
Appointments for Fascia Treatment
Support for balance issues, younger children generally have shorter attention spans and treatment thresholds, hence the graduated scale in appointment length:
- Up to 30 minutes for children from birth to 6 years old: This timeframe suits their developmental stage and capacity to remain engaged during treatment.
- Up to 45 minutes for children aged 6 to 10: As children grow, they can handle longer sessions, which allows for more in-depth treatment.
- Up to 60 minutes for those aged 10 to 17: Older children and teenagers can benefit from the longest sessions, which can address more complex issues as their bodies are closer to adult physiology.

I am deeply committed to helping children, especially those with ADHD, recover from concussions by addressing the critical nutritional deficiencies that hinder their healing process. Through the innovative Dynamic Brain Healing and Brain Nutrition Program, combined with targeted Fascia Release techniques, I strive to facilitate lasting recovery and resilience.
Since initiating my practice in 1994, the cornerstone of my approach has been to educate young individuals about the importance of early intervention and proactive health measures for a life free from discomfort.
The journey towards recovery begins with cultivating a keen awareness of the body’s intricate systems—including the lymphatic, nervous, fascial, and cranial networks—and understanding how nurturing these systems underpins a higher quality of life.
By empowering children with knowledge so they connect to their “inner physician,” gaining insights into the origins of pain and recognizing the value of preventive care. This holistic understanding is vital for children to embrace their healing journey and for fostering a proactive attitude towards their health and well-being.
