for your baby
For your baby, massage is an enjoyable and relaxing experience that promotes good health, strengthens bonds, and teaches them the importance of loving touch.
For you, the benefits of massaging your infant include improved non-verbal communication, increased confidence in handling your baby, appreciation of their unique personality, and heightened awareness of your infant’s physical and mental health.
What is infant massage?
Infant massage is a gentle massage technique that’s typically performed by a parent or another caregiver. Massage stimulates the infant’s vagus nerve and makes their body more attentive to stimulation, resulting in heightened alertness, improved sleep patterns, better digestion, and reduced stress. Through massage, you’ll establish attachment bonds with your child, which are thought to indirectly modulate immunological function and lead to better overall health.
Nurture your parental bond
Touch is a vital component of soothing your child. With infant massage, you can offer the comfort your little one needs while strengthening bonds between you and them. Our infant massage classes are taught monthly in a small group setting.
