Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Baby massage

Touch is one of the first senses that babies develop in utero and is necessary for their subsequent psychological and emotional development. By massaging your baby, you will reinforce baby’s awareness of his or her own body.

Massage can help your baby to feel confident and secure. A massage is a moment of in-depth relaxation: it can asssist with various problems such as colic, digestive issues and constipation, it can improve sleep and generally help to soothe your baby.
From birth and until baby’s first birthday, massage can contribute to strengthening the bond and enhancing communication between you.

Who is baby massage for?
