A loving tradition that dates back at least 1,000 years, infant massage is a safe and healthy way for a caregiver and child to bond. As practiced by the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM), infant massage incorporates elements of Swedish and Indian massage, yoga and reflexology to promote healthy touch. This makes it an ideal practice for not only parents but grandparents and even siblings. It is also particularly helpful when parents are away for a long time (such as military deployments) or are welcoming a new addition to the family (adoption). Beyond the psychological effects, studies have shown that infants who are massaged gain weight more quickly, sleep longer and better, and have better cognitive development. Class is designed for infants, age birth-10 months, but the techniques can be modified as your child grows.
Life like dolls are available so that anyone who wants to learn how to conduct infant massage can participate.
