Follow Along as RMT Rosemary Brown and Learn the Health Benefits of Massage and Trustworthy Techniques

A calm and clearly demonstrated approach for full body baby massage, this is an approximately half-hour instructional video that provides the reasons for baby massage and describes how to massage various parts of the body.

Promotes Connection, Improves Sleep, Relieves Colic

There is a complete section on a technique to help babies with colic.  Baby massage helps both you and your baby relax. It encourages bonding between caregiver and infant and contributes to healthy brain development. Learning to do baby massage is a bit like learning to cook – when you read various recipes you get a good idea of the essential aspects of the recipe and can then modify the recipe to work for you. We feel that a parent/caregiver who watches all of our baby massage videos will come away with a high level of competence and confidence about baby massage. This in-depth video is excellent for someone who has taken a class and cannot remember the steps or techniques. It is also ideal for those who cannot attend a class as it guides you through the steps of massage, providing the benefits of massage to each part of your baby’s body. We encourage you to learn from your health professional if the recommendations in the videos are right for your child. Healthy, loving touch is one of the most important factors for infants to grow and thrive.
