What are the benefits of massage? There are so many! Here are a few... • It satisfies the baby basic need for warmth, comfort and security. • It promotes relaxation for baby and for whoever is massaging the baby! • Enhances the early bond between parent and baby and provides happy life long memories. • Clinical evidence has shown that massage complements the all round development of your baby. • It encourages muscular elasticity and coordination. • It encourages joint flexibility. • It improves blood circulation and promotes the proper functioning of breathing. • It can help relieve the discomforts of colic and wind, and help regulate the gastrointestinal tract. • It has a direct effect on the baby’s tactile system, and helps increase sensory awareness and input. • It enhances the relationship between parent and baby and most significantly has been shown to be most helpful in the management of and prevention of post natal depression. • It has an anti-stress effect and has been shown to improve the weight gain in premature infants in the neo- natal period. During classes, Helen will cover all these topics, discuss different massage oils and give out booklets explaining the whole massage routine, for home use.
