Massage gives parents a chance to connect and interact with their child on a deeper level than the usual day-to-day contact might provide.
“Affectionate touch and rhythmic movement are among the most powerful forms of communication between babies and their parents, so they’re great ways for you to bond,”
Both research and anecdotal evidence from families have shown that there are many ways that babies and families may benefit from infant massage. Baby Massage is an ancient and natural tradition in many countries of the world. Before babies are able to understand language, we often communicate and comfort them through touch. If the mother experienced massage through pregnancy,the baby will recognise the gentle rhythm of touch, movement, interaction and communication.
