INFANT MASSAGE CLASSES Q & A

What Are the Benefits of Infant Massage?

Infant massage goes above and beyond the benefits of massage for adults. With infant massage, improved circulation, manual muscle manipulation, and improved range of motion help to strengthen and tone the muscles. Gently massaging an infant also helps in the development of the nervous system which is essential for proper body function and movement. The improved circulation ensures that the child's tissues receive the nutrients they need for proper growth and development. Above all else, the gentle touch of a mother or father during an infant massage helps to establish bonds which will tie one to the other for the rest of their lives.

How Often Should Infant Massage be Performed?

Infant massage can be performed on a daily basis. It can be easily done at bath time since there is no clothing to hinder the movement of the hands. A massage, bath, and then a full belly can ensure that your baby sleeps contently. Infants normally enjoy the one-on-one interaction and will begin to look forward to the special time that is shared during the massage.

Why Attend a Class?

The infant massage class at Harmony Pediatrics is a one-hour session. This provides both the parent and baby time to learn and become accustomed to massage. The techniques and styles of baby massage will be easy to understand when demonstrated by Dr. Chheda. Pressure, the length of the massage, respect, rate, rhythm, baby’s body language, the positioning of the baby, bonding, why the baby cries, relaxation and parent empowerment will all be touched on during the course.
