WHAT IS A BABY MASSAGE TREATMENT?
 
Baby massage has been a longstanding parenting tradition in many Eastern cultures, such as in India, Africa and Asia, and has been introduced to the Western world during the last 30 years, but it is not to recently that is has gained popularity in the UK.   Baby massage is when a parent or primary carer lovingly strokes or holds their baby.  Using a high quality non-fragranced vegetable oil, soothing holds and rhythmic strokes are given on each are of the baby's body, following a sequence which has been developed over many years.  The massage offers a wonderful experience and a special time to communicate both verbally and non-verbally with babies and small infants, so that they feel loved, valued and respected.
