Why is Massage so good for babies and children?

Holistic Massage is a wonderful way to promote wellness, not only in adults but by starting young, with our children.

It promotes a sense of relaxation and security, with the gentle touch of a parent or guardian making a baby feel secure and loved as they begin life’s journey. It also helps to create and nurture a physical and emotional bond, can assist in supporting wellness by improving the immune system, and working with any physical ailments. By using massage as part of daily routine, parents or guardians can build trust and enjoy this special time with their child.

Why take this course?

Because babies and children’s bodies are smaller and more delicate, than an adult, massage is worked differently on a baby or young child. Also, the length of time worked on them will hugely differ from an adult.
