Infant massage is a massage carrying a message of love.
A caring touch is good for everyone, but especially for infants who are new to the world and need the reassurance of someone special being there for them.
There are some major benefits for parents who gain an increased awareness of their baby and his or her needs while enhancing the bonding process between care giver and baby. Touch therapy triggers many physiological changes that help infants and children grow and develop.
Research and studies have shown that infant massage alleviates the stress that newborns experience as a result of the enormous change that birth creates.
They have just spent nine months in a wonderful little home that fed them, kept them warm, brought them the oxygen they needed, took care of waste products, and provided a gentle rocking motion to soothe them. Now, the outside world has taken over, and things are not as simple as they were. Massage enables a smoother transition from the comfortable womb to that of humankind.
