Baby Massage

Learning how to Massage your baby and incorporate it into your bedtime routine, benefits both parents and baby. I teach parents and caregivers how to massage their own child. Instruction is important to learn about what massage oils can be used on a baby.

Some of the benefits of infant massage can include:

  • Assisting in the bonding process
  • Helping babies to stay relaxed and cry less
  • Helping strengthen legs and arms in preparation for crawling and walking
  • Improving the baby's immune system
  • Promoting sounder and longer sleep
  • Promoting bonding (verbal and non-verbal communication is developed)
  • Regulating digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems
  • Relieving pain and discomfort from gas and colic, congestion and teething
  • Helping the production of endorphins, which relieves stress
