The Benefits of Infant Massage

There are so many amazing benefits of infant massage, as silly as it may sound. I massage all three of my kids and have since birth.

Some people swear by infant massage – similarly, like those who swear by getting their baby’s spine adjusted at the chiropractor. Pair massage with essential oils and the whole family can benefits from it’s calming effects and ¬†other health benefits.

The benefits of infant massage include:

  • Bonding
  • Calms & Relaxes
  • Alleviates Colic*
  • Promotes Restful Sleep
  • Supports Immune System
  • Healthy Weight Gain*
  • Promotes Healing of Prematurity*
  • Relieves Gas Pains*
  • Builds Self-Esteem
  • Builds Self-Soothing Skills*
  • Develops Learning & Neuro-Pathways*

Infant massage is easy and free! By incorporating coconut oil and essential oils, some of the benefits listed above will become enhanced.

Using Lavender promotes a restful night’s sleep.

Using Thieves* supports the immune system.

And Peace & Calming or Gentle Baby helps calm and relax both mom and baby.
