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 coping mechanisms
- Regulation of behavioural states
- Reduction in cortisol and an increase in oxytocin and serotonin
