Precious Moments baby massage is about discovering newborn communication through their body language.
Baby massage is centuries old and promotes health, happiness, security and a feeling of being loved. The benefits of baby massage for both parent and baby are significant too which is why it’s widely endorsed by medical practitioners across the world.
Baby Massage involves the parent learning a series of strokes and massage techniques in order to enhance their baby’s physiological and psychological development and to deepen the parent-infant bond through nurturing touch. Nurturing touch supports the parent-infant relationship and promotes sensitive, attuned parenting.
As well as learning the massage sequence, Precious Moments baby massage is about discovering newborn communication through their body language (non-verbal communication), and learning how to interpret this in terms of whether or not they would like a massage. At precious moments we believe it is important for babies to only be massaged if they are accepting of it and effectively 'agree' to the process.
