Baby Massage Therapy Services

Newborn babies are a source of happiness, hope and a lot of love. New parents want nothing more than to prioritize care for their new little ones, and in some cases there are issues which must be worked through during infancy. Whether a baby has difficulty feeding, was born prematurely or has other common infant issues, new studies have shown specialized massage therapy can have a positive impact on their development and overall health.

While many people have not heard of the concept of a baby massage, many medical professionals promote this type of care for babies in all sorts of situations. As a certified massage therapist, I have experience providing treatment for all types of people, including infants.

It’s understandable for parents to have questions about any type of treatment for their babies. In the sections to follow, I will answer a few common questions about baby massages to help shed some light on this helpful practice for infants.

What is a baby massage?

Baby massages have been growing in popularity in recent years. A baby massage can be performed in their home with parents present, could be part of a baby’s care in the hospital and/or can be performed by parents when they are properly trained. These massages consist of gentle techniques applied to key body parts which can have positive effects on many different bodily systems for the baby.

What are the benefits of baby massage?

Research has shown baby massages provide more than just positivity through physical touch (although this is an important benefit which shouldn’t be overlooked). Baby massages, when performed by a trained professional, are used to help with many common ailments which little ones can face. Massage therapy can help the digestive system develop at a faster rate, and has been proven to simulate weight gain in premature babies. In addition, research has shown baby massage helps regulate heart rate, breathing and stress in little ones.

Is a baby massage safe?

The most common, and most important, question I get from parents is regarding the safety of baby massages. When performed by a trained professional, a baby massage carries virtually no risk and can provide some great benefits. A baby massage is gentle and relaxing by design, and very little pressure or stress will be put on the baby’s body during the process.

Can you teach me how to give my baby a massage?

The baby massage process always involves parents or guardians because the baby feels most comfortable with them. I love sharing techniques with parents during these sessions, and many clients have been able to regularly massage their babies after a few sessions with me and have shared great results; not only for the little ones, but for the parents who feel more connected to them and provide relief through massage techniques.
