The beauty of baby massage

 

Massage is a wonderful and special pleasure that you can share with your baby.  Baby massage is not new. This ancient art has been used in diverse cultures across the world for thousands of years to boost physical and mental development, encourage emotional bonding, and promote relaxation.

Babies crave skin contact.  Touch is your baby’s most developed sense at birth, and through it you can communicate with baby immediately.  Everyone can touch and massage.  Massage is a technique that reinforces the natural power of touch.

Baby massage has well-established benefits for you and your child.  Integrating massage into your relationship gives you another way to get to know and understand each other.  Massage eases your baby’s transition from the womb into the world and can help stimulate development. Above all, it enables you both to relax and have fun together.

Massage offers you the opportunity to communicate love, comfort, and support to your baby.  It allows you to interpret subtle nonverbal language and develops your ability to listen.  When you massage your baby, you lay down foundations of trust and security that will help you build a happy ad confident relationship for the future.

Using the right massage oil

Using the right massage oil

The decision of what oil or medium to use with your baby for massage time is an important one. We recommend a pure cold pressed, organic, vegetable, nut, seed, or fruit oil. These are easily absorbed by the skin and provide additional benefits to your child during and after the massage.

As the skin absorbs these oils so easily there will be no oily residue remaining. This means you will not have to wash the oil off afterwards. Avoid mineral oils as well as olive oil, although olive oil is a natural product, its texture is too thick to be absorbed by the skin, so it will not help to moisturise your baby’s skin.

Infant Massage Information Services sell cold pressed organic baby massage in the form of vegetable, nut and seed.
