Infant Massage: 10 Reasons to Massage Your Baby

Would You Like To:
  • Form a strong bond of love and trust with your baby?
  • Help your baby sleep better and for longer?
  • Ease your baby’s wind (gas) and colic pain?
  • Relieve your baby’s constipation?
  • Stimulate your baby’s neurological development?

Infant massage makes babies feel loved, cherished and respected.

            Infant massage is a traditional art/skill passed down from generation to generation in various cultures such as in India, Africa, and Asia. However, many younger generations are unaware of infant massage and its benefits, or just don't have the time and energy to spend with their precious child.

            In today’s urban, modern society, the whole “working hours” are generally spent at work. Children are left to provide for themselves under another woman’s care. Even housewives are extremely busy running a home, doing housework and errands. It is not surprising that most mothers feel that they have gone through a whole day without some precious moments to spend bonding with their child.

            Infant massage will be a reason for you to have some dedicated bonding moments with your child. It’s about time parents free themselves from the stresses of society and give themselves permission to spend some quality, precious moments with their child through infant massage. Infant massage is not just for mothers, fathers also are highly encouraged to bond with their child by using this method. All you need is a few minutes to focus on bonding with your child!

            This would be a beginning of a healthy lifelong relationship which both parents and child desperately need. The benefits of infant massage far outweigh the cost, and you must invest the time for you and your child.

            Infant massage offers a wonderful experience to both parents and babies where a special time to communicate (verbally and non-verbally) with their babies is created. This communication makes babies feel loved, cherished and respected. Infant massage also gives an opportunity to create a trusting, nurturing and healthy relationship foundation with our children, which will enable them to be a better generation of mothers and fathers themselves. 

 Infant massage creates dedicated bonding moments with your child.

Parents work with their own baby.When practicing with your baby, never rush or force anything. If you feel stressed or tense, just take a break and come back to the practice later. Always ensure that you feel safe, secure and confident with the way you are holding or working with your baby. Never do anything that you do not feel comfortable with.

If your baby is unwell, it is best not to attend the massage class. Never practice on a distressed baby, or if your baby is limp, pale, has a temperature, or any difficulties breathing. Please seek appropriate medical help. It is not recommended to practice within 24 hours of your baby’s immunization
