Infant Massage is about ...<br />• Using the correct pressure, rate, rhythm and stroke technique, facilitated by a certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI)<br />• Learning to understand your baby’s verbal and non-verbal cue’s -<br />What are verbal cues? What tone of voice does your baby use? Are they ‘squealing’ in delight or ‘whining’ because they are tired (examples only).<br />What are non-verbal cues? Pay attention to your baby’s body language, is it positive or negative? Look for openess and willingness to receive massage. ‘No’ body language – eg look at face eg grimacing, yawning; arms eg jerky movements<br />• Respectingyour baby’s communication<br />• Teaches your child what is ‘appropriate positive touch’ and that it is okay to say ‘no’ to massage<br />
