The list of benefits for infant massage is extensive, being valuable for mum and dad as well as baby.

bub massageScientific research is supporting an ancient belief that massage lias preventive, health maintenance, growth, and  developmental benefits for infants and children. The belief is that by using massage, the quality of life and interaction between parent/ caregiver and infant/child is enhanced. Current studies are attempting to prove that benefits are experienced by the caregiver administering the massage as well as by those receiving the massage.
