I'm glad you are taking the time to learn about one of the most
wonderful ways of communicating with your child... touch. The goal
of this web site is to give you the information you need to take
the first step in enhancing a rewarding and loving relationship
with your child.
Learning the art of infant massage
is one of the most gratifying and loving activities that you can
share with your baby. It is a wonderful way to enrich the parent-infant
relationship and provide your baby with a pleasurable form of
stimulation that will enhance your baby's overall development. Research
has shown that nurturing relationships in the first 3 years of life
profoundly impact the brain's development and therefore who we become
for a lifetime. Infant massage has valuable
benefits for both the baby and the care giver that help cultivate
a nurturing lifelong relationship. I truly believe in this type
of work as it has made an incredible impact in my relationship with
my own son and with the relationships of the families
I have worked with.
I teach group
and individual series, depending on the needs of the parents
and baby. Classes are in my home, in the home of an individual participant,
or at a facility that accommodates a particular group. I also do
brief introduction to infant massage in-services for interested
mothers or professional groups. In my classes, I use my experience
as an occupational therapist and as a mother to augment my instruction
in infant massage and communication.
Enjoy exploring this web site. Please
let me know if you have any questions
or if you or someone you know are interested in participating
in a class. Thank you and God bless.
