The benefits of Baby Massage
During baby massage the natural love hormone is produced (Oxytocin) encouraging closeness and contentment between parent and baby.
Babies feel protected and loved.
Massage strengthens the immune system and helps baby breathe deeper-absorbing more oxygen for less effort.
Massage assists digestion, relaxes the tummy and encourages feelings of tranquility.
Parents have the opportunity to make friends and provide support for each other.
