Learn to Masbaby facesage Babies 
and Young Children

Helps with:

  • Bonding - Dads too 
  • Setting your child up for a lifetime of safe, respectful, meaningful interactions
  • General immune health of baby
  • Specific digestive health (if specific abdominal massage is performed)
  • And more.

And it feels great for both receiver and giver! 

Did you know that:





  • Touch is the first sense to be developed by babies. Their world is full of sensing, feeling and touching, beginning in the womb.
  • Research studies have shown that babies who are touched and stroked sleep better, are less fractious and suffer less from colic.
  • Premature babies gain weight more quickly and tend to lose their anti-touch behaviours when they are massaged regularly (Field, et. Al 1986).
  • Without loving touch, babies may not thrive and, in fact, may not survive.
