Benefits of Baby Massage

  • Relaxes – not every baby knows how to relax. Baby massage lessens tension and irritability, helping your baby to relax

  • Aids digestion – helps to relieve the symptoms of colic, constipation and wind

  • Improves sleep – Baby massage releases serotonin – a feel-good hormone which reduces stress, resulting in a longer, deeper, more restful sleep

  • Improves muscles and joints – baby massage improves circulation and stimulates the nerves, helping to strengthen baby’s muscles and improve flexibility in their joints

  • Enhances bond – touch conveys love and affection which are essential for emotional and physical growth and wellbeing

  • Promotes communication – touch is your baby’s first language. Practising baby massage promotes positive relationships and awareness of verbal and non-verbal cues between parent and baby
