Touch is one of the most stimulating and nurturing early experiences your baby will have and can enhance many aspects of their lives. There is nothing more emotionally healing than human touch. Therapies involving touch can bring comfort, nurturing, and supportive energy to babies and promote the release of human growth hormones. Infant massage greatly enhances the early bonding relationship between parents/caregivers and their babies. By using gentle, tactile stimulation along with loving verbal communication, a wonderful bonding experience is shared. Strokes can be either stimulating or relaxing, depending on your baby’s needs and developmental level. It is a pleasurable experience for both parent and baby.
