Baby Massage – What is it and how can it help?

Massage is a wonderful and special gift that you can share with your baby. Baby massage is an ancient art used in many diverse cultures to help with a variety of physical and emotional needs and to promote relaxation.

Babies crave skin contact. Touch is your baby’s most developed sense at birth and through it you can communicate love, security and trust to your baby immediately.

Baby massage will allow you to understand your baby’s subtle nonverbal language and develop your ability to listen to your baby through the creation of a special intimate time together.
