Infant Massage

Becoming increasingly popular, infant massage is usually taught to new mothers as a way of bonding with their newborn and of encouraging infant health. Promoted by Vimala McClure, it incorporates nurturing touch, massage, and reflexology in a loving, fun, one-on-one interaction. A study performed at several universities all over the world showed infants who received 15 minutes of massage a day gained weight 47% faster and demonstrated other physical and neurological benefits.
