 Benefits of Infant Massage:

  • Improved sleep patterns, falling asleep more easily and staying asleep longer. 

  • Reduced stress behaviors and lower cortisol levels after receiving massage (for both mom and baby). Cortisol is a major hormone produced when we experience stress and causes inflammation throughout the body. 

  • Improve motor development, especially in premature infants 

  • Infants in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) who received massage showed 21% more weight gain and were discharged an average of 5 days earlier than those who did not receive massage.

  • Improved interaction, attachment and bonding between the family members. Babies greet the parents with more eye contact, smiling, vocalizing and reaching responses, and are more expressive

  • Decreased symptoms of postpartum depression and ease of attachment after stressful pregnancy/delivery (PTSD)
