Benefits of Baby Massage
Baby Massage can help to relief a number of issues from teething pain, nasal congestion, symptoms of colic, trapped wind or constipation, muscle tension, itchy dry skin, to name a few.
Connecting to your new little one might not come as easy as the books make it seem, this can be a challenge for some parents and that's ok.
Baby Massage improves the beautiful connection & communication between parents & their little ones, by getting to know your baby's body language and non verbal cues even better.
Baby Massage stimulates the nerves within the skin to send signals to the brain, stimulating the nervous system, which supports brain development. Respiratory system, digestive and circulatory systems.
Lymphatic system, (the body's waste disposal system) by riding the body of waste products, it boosts the immune system.
Massage is renowned for relaxing benefits. Baby Massage is not only relaxing for baby, but for the parent too. The skin to skin contact in baby massage enables the production of oxytocin, this is the love hormone (that same warm feeling you get when you hug someone). This hormone can reduce heart rate, blood pressure, anxiety, and adrenaline.
