PEDIATRIC MASSAGE THERAPY
People are always surprised to hear that kids need massages too!
It's true. Their bodies are constantly developing and changing. Massage can help them with sports injuries, growing pains, stress, anxiety, and learning what healthy touch looks like.
After they get their first massage they will keep asking to come back!
BECAUSE KIDS NEED MASSAGE, TOO!
At Happy Kiddos we strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for all. Regardless of what brings you to Pediatric Massage, we look forward to meeting you and your family and working to tailor a program to assist with your specific health and development goals!
Our passion for infant and Pediatric massage stems from our love of children. We would like to provide you the opportunity to learn how to communicate through touch with your little one and become part of your child's healthcare team.

Following the completion of her 2200 hr Massage Therapy Diploma through Mount Royal University, Maggie McFarlane, Owner of Happy Kiddos Massage, immediately knew that her new skills and knowledge paired with her love of children would provide a unique opportunity to educate, and work with children and their caregivers.
Maggie was fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from one of the premier authorities on infant and pediatric massage, Tina Allen of the LiddleKidz Foundation, and committed to the specialty through the completion of the Certified Infant Massage Teacher course in 2017, and Pediatric Massage Therapy Certificate in 2018.
Maggie has a true passion for enhancing the relationship between parent and child and looks forward to introducing you to unique and tailored practices and techniques that will help you and your child communicate more effectively through touch.

"Maggie has been treating out whole family for many years and has always been wonderful. Our youngest was colicky at 1 month old and if you know, you know-it’s incredibly difficult. Maggie was able to identify some issues my daughter was having with her neck that were causing latching issues. After just one treatment we were able to see improvement. I had no idea little bodies could need so much help. She’s continued to work with us and offer her knowledge and guidance to help me advocate with other healthcare providers as well. Maggie is amazing and I can’t thank her enough!"
