What is Baby / Infant Massage?

infant massage is an ancient tradition

using gentle and nurturing touch as a way of lovingly communicating and bonding with your child from the beginning.

Working with your child

it creates a deeper level of trust and understanding between you and your baby.

When taught correctly

these strokes can relax your child, encouraging better sleep and help improve digestion.

BEING TOUCHED AND CARESSED, BEING MASSAGED, IS FOOD FOR THE INFANT. FOOD AS NECESSARY AS MINERALS, VITAMINS, AND PROTEINS
-Dr Frederik Leboyer
