Communicating With Your Baby Through Massage

Have you ever wondered what your baby is thinking or feeling?

The first form of communication that you have with your child is through touch. To a baby, touching is talking. With eye-to-eye and skin-to-skin contact, the exchange of smiles, and other facial expressions, baby massage combines the important aspects of bonding between parent and child. Through the intimacy of massage parents are able to communicate and transfer love, comfort and security to their babies, which in turn develops their self-esteem.

Baby massage has been shown to have a wide range of positive health benefits - from enhancing neurological development to helping your baby learn to relax. Massaged babies are better sleepers and more alert when awake. Baby massage increases circulation, releases muscle tension and improves the immune system. It can help relieve discomfort from gas and colic, congestion and teething.

Baby massage is also a wonderful way for parents, especially first time parents, to gain confidence in their natural parenting ability.
