Babies Benefit Most From Massage

An article in The Australian Advertiser says that babies, more than adults, can benefit from massage.

Vice President of IAIM Australia Glenda Chapman said a baby's earliest experiences with touch can affect every aspect of their lives.

"Clinical research has demonstrated that a loving, nurturing touch has a lasting positive impact on a baby's emotional and physical well-being," she said.

"Parents report increased feelings of confidence in caring for their baby as a result of infant massage.

"Also, research studies show respiratory, muscular, circulatory and immune systems all benefit from the positive effects of massage."
