What is baby massage

Infant Massage can be a wonderful extension of this natural impulse, whilst enhancing the bonding process through skin-to-skin touch, eye contact, voice, smell and the release of oxytocin

BABY MASSAGE

I am an accredited IAIM (international Association of Infant massage) Instructor and can provide lessons both on a one to one basis or in a group
Touch is the first sense developed in the womb and touch is how a baby primarily experiences and communicates with their world. A parent’s positive nurturing touch has an important role for easing the transition from womb to world for their new baby. Infant Massage can be a wonderful extension of this natural impulse, whilst enhancing the bonding process through skin-to-skin touch, eye contact, voice, smell and the release of oxytocin.

Infant Massage is a baby-led parenting practice that is cue-based and therefore provides the perfect opportunity for parents to gain a deeper understanding of their baby’s behavioural states, unique language and their cues, and how to respond according to these with empathy, love and listening.

Not only does Infant Massage encompass all the elements of bonding; touch, eye contact, voice, smell and the release of oxytocin, it empowers the parent as the expert of their baby, which leads to higher levels of self-esteem and increased confidence in their own ability to connect and communicate with their baby; which in turn is shown to enhance the bonding and attachment process.

The nurturing that is gained through the gentle interaction of Infant Massage increases parent responsiveness and so reduces the stress hormone cortisol, whilst promoting the feel good hormone, oxytocin.
The attunement that develops between a parent and their baby through Infant Massage promotes the increase of neuron connections in a baby’s brain.
These neuron connections are responsible for emotional and social intelligence and later resilience as they grow.
