26 Jul The importance of infant massage
Earlier in the year I had the pleasure of writing a learning module for the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation. This module addressed the importance of infant massage on brain development.
It is a message I have advocated to parents of infants for years, as there have been numerous findings of the health benefits of infant massage. These benefits include; stimulation of brain development, weight gain, regulating body temperature, assisting with sleep, whilst promoting growth and maintaining physiological harmony.
