Infant massage is a simple, gentle process proven to help ease colic, digestive problems, fussiness and a host of other common discomforts in babies. Doctors worldwide have recognized the positive impact of massage on infants' well-being. In her groundbreaking research, Dr. Tiffany Field, Director of the Touch Research Center at the University of Miami, discovered that: "...[massaged babies] are more active, gain weight faster and become more efficient. It's amazing how much information is communicable in touch..." Infant Massage: The Power of Touch offers a contemporary approach to this ancient art, Ines Benedict, a licensed neuromuscular therapist, leads this step-by-step lesson in baby massage techniques. Special strokes enable caregivers to tailor the massage to each child's individual needs, and an enlightening question-answer session with a registered nurse and childbirth instructor with the Better Birth Foundation further addresses a multitude of questions about infant massage.
