"At first I was not sure how to massage my 11 year-old son especially when he builds up a wall between us, communication break down at this age I thought. In EduQ class I learn how to approach and rebuild confidence, bond with my child thru nurturing touch and i am so happy both of us getting understand and trusting each other more after every session of massage. And sometimes he gives me a short back and neck massage in return. I totally believe massaging our child is one of the best parenting method" mother M said.
