Holding, kissing, and cuddling babies are loving ways to nurture their growth and to create a vital bond between parent and child. With massage, the positive effects of touch are intensified, directly influencing the physical growth of infants.

The latest research on infant development shows even preterm infants’ weight gain can be facilitated by massage therapy.

Fully illustrated, this classic handbook presents a time-tested approach to the techniques and benefits of parent-child touch, including:

  • The process of bonding and body contact
  • Baby massage as an expression of love
  • Healing the effects of birth trauma
  • Baby massage as a healing alternative to drugs
  • Benefits to the parents
