BEFORE they are born?
During a Pre/Post-Natal Certification Class I was performing abdominal work on a woman who was pregnant and her baby instinctively turned over and exposed his back for me to massage! How absolutely AMAZING is that!!!
Research from the Mayo Clinic has listed the following as
Benefits for infant massage:
- Encourage interaction between giver and baby
- Helps the baby relax and sleep
- Positively affect infant hormones that control stress
- Reduce crying
- Can aid in bowel elimination (per Certification Class)
What a wonderful change positive touch can make on persons body.........regardless of their age.
