::: IMPORTANCE OF MASSAGE FOR BABIES
Infant massage is an excellent chain of love that unites the relationship between mother, father and child. Through the frequent practice of massages on babies, parents are able to better understand the phases of growth, understanding the development of the body, changes in behavior, phases of sleep, crying crises, anxiety and irritation. The subtle touch and affection present during the massage, allow babies to experience moments of relaxation that bring joy and comfort.
