If you’re wondering if Infant Massage may be right for you, the short answer is: YES! Infant Massage is beneficial for all parents and babies and research shows that it improves sleep, body function, balance and coordination, learning and concentration, brain and visual development, and medical incomes for babies. Not to mention that it helps relieve depression and anxiety in parents and babies, gas and colic, teething discomfort, and so much more.
Achievement Therapy Center provides a special Infant Massage course to teach parents and caregivers how to properly massage their infants. It’s a 5-week class, meeting once a week for 60-90 minutes. Dr. Tania Stegen-Hanson, specially trained in Infant Massage, teaches parents and caregivers how to use nurturing touch to feel closer to their babies while reducing fussiness and promoting health and happiness.
