Massage can help to stimulate an infant’s muscular and nervous system, help prevent any malformation, and can assist in a healthy development of the child’s body, mind and spirit.
Moreover, infant massage calms the child by reducing anxiety and stress, improves immunity and self-esteem, stimulates better sleep, relaxation, focus, appetite, and reliefs children common ailments such as abdominal and stomach discomfort, fever, or excessive crying.
Learning Thai Baby or Infant massage is especially interesting for parents, because the gentle, caring and warm touch of a parent strengthens the bond between parents and child.
Infant massage is often applied using relaxing or soothing oils and creams. With older children, a Thai Massage without oils can become more suitable. Mind that young children often have less ability to concentrate or focus for a longer period and massage sessions generally are much shorter than those given to teens or adults.
