Peter Walker is a physical therapist with more than fifteen years of experience in working with children, parents, and parents-to-be. He offers baby massage workshops to midwives and other health-care professionals throughout the United Kingdom, and is the author of several books. He lives in England.
This how-to book is an ideal guide for helping parents learn about the movement and muscular development of growing babies. The author demystifies massage, focusing on its practical benefits rather than on its magical powers, although he gives a brief history of the art and its uses throughout the world. The book gives useful tips on how to introduce massage to an infant, how to recognize and react to the important stages of physical development, and, of course, how actually to massage a baby. Parents will also welcome the final chapter, called "A Healing Touch," which deals with the ways massage could help children and parents with special needs. Mary Frances Wilkens
