Baby massages strengthen immunity, improve blood circulation, promote psychomotor development, reduce abdominal colic pain, irritation and improve digestion. After a massage the baby sleeps better, eats better, and becomes calmer. Children who are regularly massaged during the first year of life are significantly less ill and outperform their peers in mental and physical development. Massage treatments are especially helpful for premature babies, and they not only catch up but also sometimes outperform normal-born peers.
The infant massage methods, which is based on the physical and mental characteristics of the infant’s first year of life, differs significantly in its performance from other massage techniques. Reflex gymnastics is a must in the newborn massage. The principle of its performance is based on the unconditional reflexes of newborns, which gradually disappear at the end of the first year of life. A baby massage will not only harmonise the psychomotor development of the baby but also, if necessary, allows the correction of various pathologies – flat feet, crooked, sloth, increased or decreased muscle tone, etc.
It is recommended to start massaging the baby as early as the second month of life when the muscles of their arms and legs are reduced. Infants should usually be massaged regularly until they are 1.5-2 years old. The baby can be given a therapeutic (if prescribed by a doctor) or a relaxing massage.
