Infant massage is a simple and meaningful practice of purposeful touch. It is a non-verbal way to say "I love you, I value you, I treasure you."
This evidence-based, simple practice of purposeful touch brings immediate and lasting results. It provides all of the essential indicators of intimate parent-infant bonding and attachment: eye-to-eye, touch, voice, smell, movement, and thermal regulation. Expectant parents often take infant massage instruction in advance so they are able to begin this wonderful loving touch right from the start.
"We're awaiting your arrival and can't wait to meet you!"
