Infant Massages are are wonderful way for mommy and baby to connect with each other. Touch is one of the first senses that babies develop and the soothing touch of an infant massage is a therapeutic experience for your newborn. Infant massage services include both instructional classes where mommy to taught the techniques to perform the massage on the newborn, as well as infant massages that are performed directly by me with your newborn.

In addition, to the calming nature of an infant massage, other benefits have been proven. The Touch Research Institute in Florida has conducted extensive scientific research into the impact if infant massage in a variety of conditions, including premature births, cocaine-exposed infants, HIV babies, colicky infants, pediatric cancer, neglected and abused children, autism, posttraumatic stress, asthma, diabetes, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. In every study, measurable improvement was documented, in areas such as weight again, decrease of fussiness, improvement in sleeping patterns, normalization of brain chemical levels, decrease anxiety, decrease in depression, and, improved motor behaviors and muscle tones.
