How to perform baby massage?
Baby massage, although easy, has to be performed in a specific way in order to be efficient, so the baby’s sensitive points are not affected and so it doesn’t go against the blood flow. Excellence Physiotherapy London can offer help in two ways.
Our specialised paediatric physiotherapists in London can perform therapeutic massage in order to help your baby overcome any of the issues described below, such as constipation, digestive problems etc.
We also offer lessons to new mums and dads on how to safely massage their baby. Lessons consist of four sessions, during which you will learn the correct way to perform the massage, following the blood flow, the lymphatic system of the bowel movement. You will also learn the basics of baby anatomy, so you can safely and effectively give your baby a massage without affecting the baby’s vulnerable points and make this an enjoyable experience for both of you.
Excellence Physiotherapy offers home visit baby massage in London, but if you prefer for your child to be seen at the practice, we offer baby massage and baby massage course at the Light Centre practice Belgravia near Victoria station.
What are the benefits of baby massage?
Baby massage may be very simple, but it has enormous benefits for both the baby and the parents. It can be used as part of the treatment for several conditions and it has physiological as well as psychological benefits. It can be efficiently used against:
- Digestive disorders
- Colic and constipation
- Trapped wind
- Sleeping problems
It can also be efficient for the following:
- Improving blood circulation
- Eliminating toxins from the lymphatic system
- Stimulating growth
- Easing breathing
- Stimulating neuro-motor sensations
Stimulating the baby’s neuro-motor sensations will help them discover tactile sensations, which in turn will help them develop their movement faster and with more coordination. This stimulation can be particularly beneficial for babies that experience issues with neuro-motor development.
Giving a massage to your baby also has great psychological benefits, as it builds a strong connection between the parent and the baby. The contact of the mother’s or father’s hand on the baby’s skin makes him/her feel loved and relaxed. It increases the bonding between baby and parent and makes both of them happier. Moreover, studies have shown that massaging your baby can help alleviate the symptoms of post natal depression in new mothers.
