Why Infant Massage?

Infant massage is extremely beneficial to infants for several reasons.

Research shows that massage nurtures babies’ psychological, physiological, and developmental growth. Infant massage can help foster healthy self-esteem and increase bonding between parents and their babies.

Massage gives you a new and therapeutic way

to bond with your child.

After your infant is brought home, sometimes it is hard to spend quality, nurturing time with your child due to all the changes and exhaustion that comes with being a new parent. Massage can allow you to spend some dedicated one-on-one time with your infant that will allow you to express all those feelings of love and affection.

Massage may not turn your infant into a young Einstein, or help her become emotionally balanced adult, but it will help her slow down, relax, and pay attention to the world around her, which, in turn, will help her learn. Not a bad deal for something that feels so good!
