Baby massage has been practiced in many cultures for thousands of years, and research shows many benefits. This guide has been created to give you examples of what you will learn in a massage class.
Through baby massage, you can gain increased awareness of how your baby communicates and ideas on ways to support your baby in their first few months. You and your baby will discover what is best for you both. It is important to be mindful that massage is something you do with, rather than to your baby.
These baby massage strokes are based on INFANT MASSAGE: A Handbook for Loving Parents by Vimala McClure, the founder of the IAIM. Massaging baby is also endorsed by the Integrated Midwives Association of the Philippines, Inc. (IMAP).
The IAIM is a non-profit organization and does not endorse any product.
It is recommended that you learn more from someone with a qualification in infant massage to gain the full benefit. Going to a baby massage group is an ideal way to learn to massage your baby safely.
Contact the Integrated Midwives Association of the Philippines (IMAP) to see what options are available.
