Baby Massage

Discover the secrets of Massage for Children

Baby Massage is more than just relaxation, it is a wonderful opportunity to connect and bond with your baby. You can massage your new born baby from 4 weeks untill 9-10months (start rolling and crawling) .

Learn how to soothe your baby, learn to understand your baby’s non-verbal language, and it will be enjoyable for both of you.

As a Qualified IMIS Infant Massage Instructor I will teach you everything you need to know about the massage techniques by performing this on a life size doll, while you follow the steps on your baby. The classes are relaxed and paced to allow for nappy changing, feeding or settling your baby.

Benefits of Infant Massage:

  • Reduces crying time – research shows babies who are massaged cry less.
  • Improves sleep and regulates sleep patterns – increases the hormone serotonin and regulate melatonin which helps regulate sleep patterns
  • Ideal for pre-term infants – preterm babies receiving touch therapy and massage gain weight and are discharged earlier from hospital
  • Enhances emotions and improves mood – increases dopamine levels which play a role in regulating anger, aggression, mood and appetite
  • Improves wind, colic, reflux and constipation – stimulates elimination of waste from the body and abdominal wind
  • Relieves sinus and chest congestion - promotes drainage of the sinuses and excess mucus on the chest
  • Boosts immune system -research shows massage can positively influence psychological processes and immune function
  • Reduces stress hormone levels in children and their parents - massage measurably decreases cortisol (stress hormone) levels in both children and their parents
  • Early diagnosis of potential health issues - parents who massage their infant each day are more likely to notice changes in their child’s physical condition
  • Eczema- a UK study showed significant improvement in eczema symptoms through massage.
  • Enhances coordination - Studies have shown infant massage improves left/right brain communication
