Introducing Newborn Massage!

I am very excited to be offering Newborn Massage starting in October 2015. Group and private classes will be offered.

Newborn massage is creating a bond of love and respect through touch. Parents who learn to communicate with their infants through massage using the Baby's First Massage® techniques find that it is simple, easy to learn, and requires the use of very few products.

Babies who receive massage can experience:

  • Better performance on neurological assessment scales
  • Better sleep/wake behaviors
  • Greater soothability
  • Improved growth and development
  • Improved body awareness
  • Improved relaxation and release of accumulated stress
  • Strengthened digestive, circulatory and gastrointestinal systems, which can lead to weight gain
  • Reduced discomfort from teething, congestion, gas, colic and emotional stress
  • Improved muscle tone coordination
  • Increased elimination, circulation and respiration
  • Reduced blood pressure 
  • Improved overall health

Families who share in infant massage can experience:

  • Stronger bonding and attachment between parent and baby
  • Enhanced sense of love, respect and trust among family members
  • Improved ability of the parents to read infant cues
  • Increased confidence in parenting
  • Increased communication between baby and parent
  • Strengthened parenting skills
  • Stronger family foundation through understanding, positive communication, and touch
