GIVE YOUR BABY THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL: THE GIFT OF MASSAGE!
Most parents do not need to be told that touching and holding your baby is soothing and comforting to them. Cuddling is the first step that you take towards developing a close emotional bond with your baby. Baby massage has been widely practiced by many cultures around the world for thousands of years, because people have come to recognise the benefits that it offers to both babies and parents.
As well as promoting a close emotional bond, baby massage has a number of proven benefits for your baby:
More relaxation and less fussing
Small babies sometimes fuss for no apparent reason, even when there is no obvious reason why. The loving touch of therapeutic massage helps them to feel calm and relaxed and banishes any little tensions that they have.
We all sleep better when we are feeling physically and mentally soothed and relaxed. Baby massage can help to promote good sleeping habits – particularly when used as part of your baby’s nap and bedtime routines.
Soothing of teething pains
Babies who are teething often feel discomfort which leads to tension. Massage can help to relieve this.
Relief from colic and constipation
Very small babies in particular are prone to colic. Doctors are divided on the precise cause of colic, but it is likely to be related to indigestion and temporary stomach problems. Massage helps to soothe the tummy and can shift trapped wind. It also promotes general feelings of calm and relaxation.
Positive mental, social and physical development
Therapeutic massage has been proven to promote positive healthy physical and mental wellbeing for your baby, as well as increasing mental alertness and attentiveness.
Baby massage increases bonding between babies and parents and helps to make your baby feel safe, secure and loved.
Baby massage is wonderful because it provides some very special and focused one to one time with your baby which can help to improve your mood. In the sometimes difficult stage of early parenthood it gives you some control and helps you feel empowered and more confident in your parenting skills and techniques. Spending time on baby massage has also been proven to help alleviate the symptoms of postnatal depression.
It isn’t just your baby who feels relaxed! You will too, and you will benefit from the wonderful feeling of an even closer bond with your baby.
We provide specialised baby massage classes that accommodate breastfeeding mums and are suitable to meet all of your baby's needs. We teach parents and carers everything that they need to know about baby massage from head to toe. The technique consists of gentle, rhythmic stroking of your baby's body with your hands. Parents, grandparents, carers, twins, and babies with special needs are very welcome to attend our classes, which are held in a lovely warm, calm, clean, relaxed environment.
