Infant Massage is one of the most natural and pleasant methods of providing this important early nurturing and an amazing tool for helping parents become closer to their babies.
Infant Massage provides these benefits in 4 distinct ways:
Stimulating
Stimulates all the systems of the body including the:
• Nervous system
• Circulatory system
• Respiratory System
• Elimination System
• Immune System
Stimulates the release of oxytocin, known as the cuddle hormone (is released in both parent and child), prolactin (promoting milk production in the mother) and other endorphins. Reduces muscle stiffness and normalizes muscle tone
Bonding and Attachment
• Infant massage draws on all the elements of bonding and attachment
• Eye-to-eye contact, skin-to-skin, body scent, vocalization, taste, responsiveness
• Hormones stimulated by infant massage promote bonding and attachment between parent and baby
Relaxing
• Helps relieve tension built up from all the stimulation in the baby’s environment
• Helps babies handle sensory stimulation and respond in a relaxed manner
• Helps babies sleep better
• Helps regulate sleep/wake cycle
Relief
• Touch combined with vocalization helps reduce pain levels up to 80%
• Helps tone digestive tract
• Helps alleviate gas and promote elimination
• Releases hormones for food absorption.
• Releases endorphins, natural pain killers, to ease emotional distress
