As a parent, you're always looking for new things to do with your infant that will help your child grow and develop. You can explore mentally stimulating toys as well as child-friendly venues. Infant massage is yet another way that you can assist in your child's developmental development. Massage can create an enjoyable and calming change from the usual fun and games.

Benefits of massage for your infant:

  • Having a special bonding time with a parent
  • Improving blood circulation, stimulating oxygen, and nutrient flow
  • Improving the function of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Enhanced sensory and body awareness, promoting neurological development
  • Provides relaxation from stress and discomfort by releasing cortisol
  • Helps with congestion, colic and gas symptoms
  • Promotes relaxation, helping to calm your infant
  • Improves sleeping habits
  • Stimulates your infant through touch, voice, movement and eye contact

Benefits for parents include:

  • Bonding time with your infant
  • Stress relief from your busy lifestyle
  • Improving your understanding of your infant's body language, awareness and rhythms
  • A positive, special way to interact with your child
  • Improved confidence as parents while gaining valuable, effective parenting skills
