Baby massage is the perfect way to help you to bond with your new baby and also help to stimulate their physical and emotional growth, as well as stimulating their awareness through the sense of touch. As well as benefitting the baby, baby massage is also beneficial to you as a parent, helping you to better understand your baby's non-verbal cues.
How Massage is of Benefit to Your Baby
There are heaps of benefits to baby massage. It helps to build a secure bond between the parent and the child. It also helps the baby to feel more secure emotionally, meaning that they will be more confident and well balanced as they get older. It is also great at calming and relaxing the baby, leading to less irritability and fewer tantrums.
Massage also benefits the skin as it improves its texture and condition. It improves the blood circulation, increasing the flow of oxygen to muscles and tissues and also helping to remove waste products more efficiently. The immune system is also strengthened and it helps to reduce the incidence of coughs, colds, and infections in the ear and nasal passages.
Massage can increase your baby's flexibility and help their coordination. It also helps the digestive system and can help your baby to feed better. As well, it can relieve the pain and discomfort that a baby feels when it has colic or other problems such as constipation.
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage – to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. It's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly.
A specially formulated oil for pregnancy is applied to you and the baby as you are both enveloped in pure bliss, while the therapist massages you from head to toe, even including a mini facial to help rejuvenate and brighten dull skin.
