Learn Infant Massage


Benefits of baby massage 

Reduces crying time.                             

Various research studies on infant massage have shown that there is a significant

reduction in overall crying time with infants and toddlers who receive massage.


Improves sleep and regulates sleep patterns.
Massage increases serotonin levels and regulates melatonin secretion rhythms which helps

regulate sleep patterns.


Ideal for pre-term infants.


Research has shown that infants receiving touch therapy and massage gain weight faster

and are discharged earlier than other infants


Improves wind, colic, reflux and constipation.
Massage stimulates elimination of waste from the body, can relieve abdominal wind within

minutes and speeds a natural process of the nervous system which can assist with reflux.


Relieves sinus and chest congestion.
Massage helps promote adequate drainage of the sinuses and excess mucus on the chest.


Boosts immune system.
Research shows that infant massage can positively influence physiological processes and

improve immune function.

Reduces stress hormone levels in children and their parents.
Known as "the stress hormone" cortisol is released during times of stress. Prolonged high

levels of cortisol can reduce immunity, impair cognitive performance, and reduce bone

density and muscle tissue. Massage measurably decreases cortisol levels in both children

and their parents allowing blood pressure, heart rate, digestive functioning and hormonal

levels to return to their normal state


Early diagnosis of potential health issues.
Parents who massage their infant each day are more likely to notice changes in their child’s

physical condition, which may go unnoticed longer with infants who are not receiving

massage.


Reduces symptoms of Eczema.
A UK study showed significant improvement in eczema symptoms with the introduction of

massage by parents in addition, Infant Massage Instructors have seen improvement first

hand with many babies at infant massage classes.


Enhances coordination.
Studies have shown infant massage improves left/right brain communication which has

been suggested to improve intelligence.


Enhances emotions and improves mood

Massage increases dopamine levels which are believed to play an important role

in regulating anger, aggression, temperature, mood and appetite in addition to other body

functions


"Massage helped with reflux, colic and relaxed my baby."

Sheridan & Carlo, Ringwood East, VIC


"I loved learning each new massage and so did my baby. Her reflux has improved so much

that she is no longer on any medication (and my washing has gone down heaps too)! My

only wish is that I had learnt massage sooner."
 Anita, Strathmore, VIC


"Was good one on one time with my child. Keith has been diagnosed with autism this past

December and we find the massage helps with calming and centering him."
 Jeff, Heathmont, VIC
