I am part of the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). My goal is to support parents and guide them through a new and unique bonding experience. Let me enhance the bonding process with this wonderful power of touch.
I believe in the process of bonding through infant massage to be the most enriching and intimate moment with your baby, by building trust and confidence you will not only help yourself but you are showing your baby that s/he is being listened and respected as a human being, you are letting them feel as part of this new world. This non-verbal communication will help both mother and father to communicate with your baby in a different way, with a stronger relationship not only with you but with the world and people who will later surround them.
Wouldn't you want to have that gentle touch that will sooth your baby and at the same time relax with him during the process? There are no words to explain how powerful this non-verbal communication (touch/massage) is; having a stronger communication with your baby is priceless.
"Melissa was great to work with! She is incredibly friendly and personable with both the adults and babies. She remained flexible, working around the babies' moods and needs while allowing us to practice our massage in a way that worked out for everyone. However, the best part of the experience was how knowledgeable Melissa was. She would teach us the reasons behind each action and give us tips and advice on making the experience as beneficial as possible for the babies.
Thanks again, Melissa!"
