Massage – Infant

Baby massage can be a continuation of pregnancy massage. The parents’ loving touch can enhance the foundation of trust and caring, and can help establish parent-child bonding. Studies indicate that infant massage may promote a faster release from birth trauma, increase infant growth, reduce irritability, deepen sleep and ease digestive difficulties including colic. It can be especially effective with premature babies to promote weight gain. Infant massage can be taught to parents by qualified instructors.
