When considering children for massage, it is very important that you speak to the massage therapist and inquire about their experience with children and the style of stone massage they are practicing. It is strongly recommended that if the child is 15 years-old or younger that a parent or guardian accompany them and sit in on the session.

Another thing to consider is that hot stone massage falls under thermotherapy, and that is generally not indicated for children.
