Infant massage is the very special art of using nurturing touch to communicate with babies, to show them that they are loved, welcomed and respected, and that they can feel safe and secure in their new world. It is a wonderful way of bonding with your baby as it works on an emotional as well as a physical level, developing closeness between parent and baby that has lifelong benefits. Both research and anecdotal evidence from families have shown that there are many ways that babies and families may benefit from infant massage.
Infant massage promotes bonding and attachment though touch. Using the power of Zoom/Facetime you can learn baby massage techniques and strokes while you’re at home.
Online baby massage classes can help with colic, constipation and trapped wind and helps to develop baby’s body, mind and coordination. It helps babies to relax and feel secure, and teaches them positive loving touch.
The massage helps stimulate oxytocin - the happy hormone - and promotes lactation when breastfeeding. It can also help calm both mum and baby and is a wonderful addition to bedtime - or any time!
It is suitable for babies from birth. For further details contact Mary Kenny at 087-9641246 or check out the following website www.edenmassagegalway.com
