Infant Massage ArticleAlthough infant massage therapy has been around for ages and is popular in other parts of the world such as India, it is quickly becoming more popular in the West.

As you might expect, the massage technique for infants is very different from massage for adults. It is a technique that allows parents to engage and relax their child in a mutually-pleasurable interaction.

It is not the massage therapist or the infant massage instructor who massages the infant or child, it is the parent or caregiver. In the field of infant massage, the parent is viewed as the primary source of interaction in the context of the infant’s life. As I’ve experienced myself, the dynamics of infant massage facilitate parenting skills, infant-parent interaction, bonding and attachment, and parents’ ability to read their babies’ cues.
