Baby massage provides a delightful way to develop a closer kinship and deepening bond between mother and child. Learning the simple techniques of how to massage empowers parents with a unique tool to personally take an active part in their baby’s physical growth and well-being. Most common benefits include helping to boost circulation and the immune system, regulate digestion and elimination, and strengthening the respiratory and circulatory systems. The techniques learned provide the means to relieve colic, gas and constipation. A massage session calms a baby’s sensitive nervous system and leads to more restful sleep. Parents often report enormous relief when their baby cries less and sleeps more! This enjoyable activity increases confidence in handling infants, and gives a better understanding how to provide comfort and increasing the bonding process.
Touch is a baby’s first “language”. They respond very easily to this non-verbal language of positive touch and loving communication; and thus they learn, even at this very early age, a sense of what is healthy and unhealthy touch. Mothers become better able to tune into their baby’s personality by reading their “cues”. It teaches babies how to be aware of the tension they carry in their bodies and how to release it, which is an invaluable gift as they grow into adulthood. Thus, baby massage can certainly affect a child’s emotional development and an ability to handle stress in later years. It has been observed that children who bond well with their parents in infancy have been able to develop close and secure relationships with others as adults. Massage contributes greatly to this process. It also plays a significant part in an infant’s normal mental and social development, and enhances their feelings of being loved, respected and secure.
