Learning the techniques of infant massage allow you to sustain a regular connection with your infant/baby/child, where you spend quality time together, a special time fostering love, compassion and care for each other.



Evidence shows that loving, touching, nurturing contact between parents and baby has a positive impact on the infant’s development, health and wellbeing. Some examples are:
