Infant Massage Classes
Taught by Susan Ducote, PT and Certified Infant Massage Instructor, and Shelley Early, LOTR and Certified Infant Massage Instructor.
Infant Massage is an important part of early development for babies. According to the International Loving Touch Foundation, Infant Massage is a preventative program that provides a loving touch right from the start.
Infant Massage contains such critical elements of bonding as eye-to-eye contact, smiling, soothing, vocal sounds, loving touch, caressing, smell, and mutual interaction. Studies have shown that bonding increases a parent’s feeling of attachment.
Caregivers report feeling more confident and competent in their ability to care for their baby. Infant Massage gives parents of children who may be hospitalized a special way to interact with their children.
