It doesn't matter how old or young your
are, most of us love to be touched. It is the sense upon which all
others are based and is probably the earliest to develop in the human
embryo. Even though everyone is different in how often, by whom, when
and where they like to be touched (and these differences are often
class or culture based), it is one of the most important form of
communication in our lives. Massage is healing and it has many benefits
to our health including stress release.
Massage To Stimulate The Internal Organs And Prevent Illness
Massage also has the capacity to
stimulate the internal organs, which helps to maintain and promote
their healthy functioning. It can regulate involuntary activities, such
and has successfully been used in the
East for thousands of years to support health and prevent illness.
Massage Benefits Babies, Infants And Children
One of the most common findings from
parents who regularly massage their children is that the children
become more and more relaxed and over some stress better because the
massage gives them a very good form of release. At the same time as
these more visible results, massage stimulates the infants'
circulatory, respiratory and gastro-intestinal functions. Common
ailments for babies such as colic and wind are often quickly relieved.
Massage Enhance Bonding Between Parents
For centuries, both in the East and West,
parents and grandparents have used their hands and sometimes even their
feet to gently massage the bodies of their newborn infants. It played a
major role in strengthening the relationship between parent and child
and resulted in happy, calmer, healthy babies.
