Massage can help to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage in babies thus helping to improve immune function.
Support Digestive Health
Abdominal massage isn't just about reducing gas/colic but rather improving digestive health which is an important part of improving mental health and immune function.
Massage performed to the muscle of mastication on the face and intra-orally can help to reduce inflammation and pain. This can be a very empowering treatment for parents as they struggle to witness their babies in pain.

WHAT YOU WILL Learn?
BABY CUES - What is your baby trying to tell you?
Babies often communicate their feelings through body language before they are able to speak. For example, when a baby is arching their back in distress it could be a sign of gas pain. Understanding your baby's body language and cues is important to the success of baby massage. This course will teach parents important cues so that they can respond effectively to their baby's needs.
