For a baby loving touches are messages that it can understand long before it understands language. For a newborn everything is strange – the only familiar thing is the close proximity of its mother.
These are important reasons for baby massage as the child feels a sense of security and safety. Warm hands and gentle strokes help strengthen the immune system and have a positive effect on the overall development of your baby and can also help with colic, digestive problems and sleeping disorders. Gently touching the skin all vital body systems such as respiratory, circulatory, digestive, nerbous and muscle tissue are naturally stimulated and harmonised.
Doctors and midwives recommend baby massage – especially in recent years studies have shown that baby massage brings a whole range of physical and psychological effects which support the development of the child. Therefore, baby massage isn’t just the latest trend but an ancient art.
