Touch is the first sense that is developed by a baby when growing inside the womb.  So it’s vital that this sense carries on as soon as the baby enters into the big world outside.  Touch will help your baby grow both physically and emotionally, and will allow you as parents to learn to communicate with your child.

Baby Massage, originating from a mixture of Indian and Swedish massage, reflexology and yoga, is a tradition that is still widely practised in many countries worldwide.  It has been passed down from generation to generation and not only will new mothers benefit from it, but new fathers should get involved and discover the advantages too.

Some benefits of massage for the baby:

  • Boosts the immune system
  • Improves blood circulation and skin conditionBaby Massage Whole Body
  • Can help baby sleep better
  • Helps digestion (to help relieve constipation and colic)
  • Helps joints to remain flexible and encourages muscle co-ordination
  • Helps improve the parent-baby bonding as child will feel more loved
  • Relieves blocked sinuses or teething pains

Some benefits for the parents can be:

  • Learning about your baby’s needs with every cry
  • Bonding with your baby
  • Helping to build yours and the baby’s self-esteem
  • Relaxing the parents and allows special time with your baby

Baby massage can occur as soon as the infant is born, once you as parents feel comfortable enough to do this. As you gain more experience massaging your baby, you will get to know his/her likes and dislikes and can then tailor the massage to his/her needs.

Coming from an Indian background, I know how important massage is in general, and how it plays a big part in our daily lives.  I have twins who were born in 2008, and to date they still enjoy and request a massage after their bath in the evenings. It’s part of our bedtime routine.

**Please note that any treatments carried out in those under the age of 16 will always require a parent/guardian to be present throughout the treatment and sign off on the consultation form.  A treatment without the presence of a responsible adult will NOT be carried out**
