Massage is an amazing way of getting to know your baby so well. I was trained by Sylvie Hetu, a Canadian trainer who inspired me to reach out to parents and show them just how amazing massage is to strengthen relationships between them and their babies.
Its benefits are too numerous to mention but it stimulates all systems within the body-growth hormone; serotonin and melatonin, which helps baby sleep; relieves colic and congestion. One major benefit is accelerates the production of myelin, the electric“cable” that coats the nerve endings and helps with development.It starts to build up their self-esteem for the simple reason is that they feel valued and loved because parents are spending precious time with them – and that is what all babies want and need!
My course was devised by Vimala Schnieder McClure who visited India in the 1980s and prompted her to develop the 6 weeks of learning a whole body massage using Indian and Swedish massage and Reflexology .You will be taught how to use relaxation techniques for yourself and techniques to help your baby prepare for massage such as resting hands.
We must always remember that we ask babies permission to massage their bodies; this shows respect right from the start. I believe massage makes our babies happier and if babies are happier then mums are to!
