Often used in neonatal care units, infant massage is a very valuable way for parents to bond with their child while improving the quality of their early developmental days.
Along with creating a feeling of security and love, infant massage has many benefits including improving their quality of sleep, and aids in the assistance of alleviating symptoms of colic and gas congestion. It also helps to stimulate the release of oxytocin, which is also known as the “cuddling” hormone in baby and can even help the mother in promoting milk production, as well as other endorphins.
During your baby’s session, our therapist will work very closely with each parent to increase their awareness of specific massage techniques that are designed to create confidence within the parent about their ability to improve the health of their newborn.
