Duration: 30-40 minutes. On our initial visit we will go over the health history of babies life to date
In Session: I will address any issues, or concerns while treating. While you join in, ask questions, and practice hands-on techniques. Giving you time to fully understand the techniques, pressure, timing and cues of infant massage. After your session I will send you a full breakdown of the material we covered.
As a CIMT™ (Certified infant massage trainer) I teach the tools to connect and begin communication with your infant through touch. Tapping into your parental instincts to better understand your baby's physical cues and emotional responses. While respectfully getting to know their body.
During massage both you and baby enjoy the benefits. Physical touch and eye contact elicits a physiological response that releases hormones such as Oxytocin and dopamine. These help to improve mood and encourage bonding. Studies have shown mothers with PPD (Postpartum Depression) benefit with symptom management through practicing massage.
Practicing the art of infant massage gives you confidence in a time when things can feel chaotic. Helping you to slow down and spend time with your little one. It is also a wonderful opportunity to include the family. It can be a way for grandparents, non-gestational/adoptive parents and older siblings to have time to help while bonding with baby.
Sleep: Helps improve quality & duration of sleep, the melanin and serotonin regulation.
Calming: Touch lowers cortisol, for both you and your baby
Bonding: Helps you to better understand your baby's non-verbal cues and establish a stronger bond between you & your baby.
Development: Stimulates healthy weight gain, neurological development, body awareness by connecting left and right brain communication, improves sensory awareness & Boosts immune system.
Digestive relief: Soothes colic, gas, constipation, and stimulate proper waste elimination.
Postpartum relief: Massaging baby may help to stimulate Oxytocin "the love hormone" which promotes a feeling of relaxation in both mommy & baby, helps promote lactation & bonding.
