Private Infant Massage Sessions with Jenny
After learning Infant Massage, parents report feeling more comfortable and confident in their ability to care for baby and understand and respond to baby’s cues. Infant Massage is one of the most natural and pleasant methods of providing important early nurturing and is an amazing tool for helping parents become closer to their babies. There are many benefits to massaging your baby, such as: the release of oxytocin, known as the love hormone, in both parent and child; releases prolactin which promotes milk production in the mother; and endorphins, which support bonding, relaxation and growth. Infant Massage helps babies handle sensory stimulation and helps caregivers respond in a more relaxed manner to baby’s needs. It aids in better sleep, by assisting in the regulation of the sleep/wake cycle and stimulates all the systems of the body (nervous, circulatory, respiratory, elimination and immune). Most importantly, it’s fun!
