Teaching Infant Massage is a rewarding opportunity, promoting well-being and enhancing bonding between infants and their caregivers.
“I feel closer during massage. We communicate more clearly with each other. I feel happy when I see my daughter smiling as she does during massage.”
“Learning massage gave me more confidence with my baby and to better cope with his moods and cries.”
“I found the development from totally rejecting the massage to accepting and enjoying it, made the course very rewarding to me. …I found that I have become more sensitive to and aware of what Sarah is trying to communicate.”
It is through our hands that we speak to the child. That we communicate.
Touch is the child’s first language, understanding comes long after feeling.
