Relaxation

Massage is one way you can provide your children with a relaxing, joyful experience which can last a lifetime.

You can teach your baby how to relax their body in response to stress. The ability to relax consciously is a tremendous advantage in coping with the pressure of growing up in modern society. If acquired early in life the relaxation response can become as much a part of our children’s natural system as the antibodies that protect them from disease.

Relaxation can be demonstrated by:
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Increase flexibility
  • Improved┬ácoping mechanisms
  • Regulation of behavioural states
  • Calmness
  • Reduction in cortisol and an increase in oxytocin and serotonin
