Massage is often used in neonatal care units. Infant massage is a very valuable way for parents to not only bond with their child, but also to improve the quality of their early developmental days.
The following are some benefits of infant massage:
- Improving Quality of Sleep
- Aids in Relieving Colic and Gas Congestion
- Stimulate the Release of Oxytocin (AKA: “Cuddling Hormone”)
- May Help the Mother in Promoting Milk Production
During your baby’s massage session, our therapist will work closely with you as the parents to increase awareness of specific massage techniques that are designed to create confidence within the parent about their ability to improve the health of your newborn.
