Infant Massage 

We know that massage can be very beneficial to adults, but did you know that it can be just as helpful for babies?
Infant massage can provide a wide range of benefits for babies and parents including:
  • Providing bonding between baby and parent
  • Reducing stress in babies, who often find that the world outside of the womb is too fast, loud and stressful for their comfort
  • Soothing muscle tugs that accompany bone growth
  • Assisting premature babies in gaining weight much faster 
  • Reducing gas and colic
  • Improving sleep
  • Introducing children to safe touch
  • Improving brain development
  • Helping to provide better stress management abilities even as they grow into adulthood
  • Reducing post-partum blues
Starting a daily massage routine is a perfect way to incorporate some peaceful quality time with your baby where you can be fully present with him or her. By incorporating breath-work and skin-to-skin contact, you will both feel very relaxed and you will feel a stronger bond and love form during these formative months. The benefits of infant massage can truly last a lifetime.
