Infant Massage

Research confirms the importance of a secure environment and nurturing touch for the development of children. Infant massage is one of the most natural and pleasant methods of providing early nurturing contact between a parent and child. This technique incorporates a number of important elements to strengthen the parent-child bond, including skin-to-skin contact, cuddling, facial expressions, eye-to-eye contact, soothing sounds and smell.

Infant massage stimulates brain development and sensory awareness, relaxes the child, helps decrease stress, promotes bonding and attachment, and may also help relieve the discomfort of constipation, gas, colic reflux, and congestion.

Certified educators of Infant Massage provide individual and group infant massage classes at Beth Osten & Associates.
