Why baby massage matters?
Evidence of the infant massage massage dates back to ancient India. Even then, massages were more than just a form of relaxation—they were incorporated into Ayurvedic medicine as a way to enhance circulation, get rid of toxins, improve digestive function, and boost overall well-being.
Why Close to Nature?
Infants and toddlers benefit from being outside as much as older children or even adults.
Babies and young children learn all the time. They don’t have words to describe what they encounter but they learn about their world by touching, tasting, smelling, seeing and hearing.
Babies are fascinated by sounds and movement of things.
They react with joy to sounds, colours, lights, sensations and textures to take in and experience outdoors - the crunch of dry leaves underfoot, the rustle made by grass or leaves blowing in the breeze, the sensation of wind or grass on skin, the interest provided by flowers that can be smelled and picked, the texture and smell of the garden after a rain……
When these experiences are shared with a loving adult who can share a baby’s sense of newness, wonder and awe, the entire experience is enjoyable and memorable. It is also critical to babies’ brain function, overall development and to the early experiences of achieving a positive sense of self.
