The benefits of baby massage
ABOUT BABY MASSAGE
Baby Massage establishes close, loving communication which provides security and stability for your child and has amazing therapeutic benefits. Massage releases both oxytocin and endorphins and therefore can assist in relieving discomfort associated with teething, congestion, colic, reflux and emotional stress.
It is particularly ideal for premmie babies. Studies have shown that massaging premature babies has an extremely positive result – up to 47% weight increase per day and these premature babies are discharged an average of six days earlier.
Fathers can also benefit from infant massage as it gives them time to connect and interact with their child on a deeper level than day to day contact provides.
BABY MASSAGE OIL
Enhance the special time you spend with your baby through massage. Infant massage is a wonderful way to encourage bonding between your family and your new baby and GAIA Natural Baby is just perfect to use. Our massage oil was formulated in consultation with therapists from Infant Massage Australia, who advised that sweet almond oil is all you need to massage your baby with.
Our cold pressed sweet almond oil is combined organic lavender and organic chamomile pure essential oils to provide you with a beautiful oil to use on your newborn, baby and toddler. GAIA Natural Baby Massage Oil is mineral oil free so it will absorb beautifully into your baby’s skin and won’t clog pores or cause irritation.
Our beautiful massage oil can be used on your skin as well and will be completely absorbed, leaving you with a gorgeous glow and NO greasy residue.
GAIA NATURAL BABY MASSAGE OIL IS A BLEND OF:
· cold pressed sweet almond oil – a skin nutrient that is very nourishing.
· organic lavender pure essential oil to soothe and calm
The baby bonding process uses all of your senses, touch being one of them as well as smell. GAIA Skin Naturals have taken special care not to interfere with this natural process by ensuring that our pure essential oils make up less than .3% of our blend, just enough to cover the nutty smell of the sweet almond oil. All the pure essential oils are organic.
In fact your baby will recognise the beautiful smell of GAIA Natural Baby Massage Oil and get excited when you put a few drops in your hand because they will know that it is time for their special massage.
All GAIA Natural Baby products use pure essential oils which are suitable to use during pregnancy.
