The technique

Technique MEBP® differs from a traditional massage, because it is specifically adapted for special needs children

The massage is supported by a visual sequence and is composed of deep pressures and/or gliding techniques (effleurages) in respect of every child's sensory characteristics and specific needs.

 

The massage has great impacts on the proprioceptive system, which brings many benefits:

 

-Increases body awareness
-Improves concentration and increases alertness 
-Reduces anxiety and helps managing emotions
-Reduces stress levels
-Improves sleep quality
-Increases touch tolerance
-Improves digestion and reduces constipation
-Reduces the migraines and the frequency and intensity of headaches
-Reduces the frequency and intensity of tics

 

Technique MEBP® given on a futon lying on the floor and fully dressed. 

Giving the massage on a futon promotes a bond, proximity between the massage therapist and the child, who is free of any movement.

 

With special needs children, we must see the massage as a prevention tool and not only just a way to relax.
The massage must be done with a weekly frequency to maximize the benefits.
