One of the biggest challenges faced by the project is getting the caretakers to understand that it is actually alright to massage and stretch children. In fact it is a big help with cerebral palsy for example, which tends to tighten the muscles. The mindset seems to be that the children are very fragile and there is a fear of causing more damage than good. In reality the children's inactivity exacerbates the problems.
