Infant massage as taught by IAIM focuses on the benefits of “nurturing touch.” We teach massage strokes for a child’s face, hands, legs, chest, abdomen, and back but we also emphasize the bonding and attachment between a child and parent and help parents read their child’s subtle communication cues. The benefits of daily massage are amazing! Massage stimulates a baby’s growth and development. The physiological benefits include increasing body awareness, increasing an infant’s ability to integrate sensory input, and assisting to regulate heart and lung functions. Massage can help offer relief to a child’s discomfort of gas, colic, and congestion. It is a beautiful and tender way to facilitate sensorimotor development as well as attachment and communication skills. (Massage is especially helpful for premature babies or babies with special needs.)
