“Infant massage is an ancient art that connects you deeply with the person who is your baby and helps you to understand your baby’s particular nonverbal language and respond with love and respectful listening.

 

It empowers you as a parent, for it gives you the means by which you become an expert on your own child.”

BENEFITS OF INFANT MASSAGE + WATER MOVEMENT
Infant massage can strengthen the relationship between the baby and the person providing the massage.
 
Benefits of infant massage include:

Relief - Massage can help with the physical discomforts of gas & colic, constipation & elimination, growing pains, and muscular tension.

Interaction - Promotes bonding & secure attachment, important one-on-one quality time, and undivided attention.

Relaxation - May help with improved sleep patterns, the regulation of behavioral states, and lower levels of stress hormones (such as cortisol & norepinephrine).

Stimulation - Promotes mind & body awareness, muscle development & tone.

Water movement is a fun way to help your baby discover independent movement before they are mobile on land. It is a safe place for them to explore balance and reciprocal movement.

Benefits of water movement include:

Muscle Tone - Using the water's gentle resistance can help muscular strength to increase.

Relaxation - Floating in water kept at just the right temperature can help baby to relax - much like floating in the mother's womb.

Stimulation - Proven to help promote healthy eating and sleeping patterns.

Confidence - Starting water movement early in life can help build confidence in the water for later on.
