The Benefits of Massage to Children

Parenting does not end in providing the needs of the children, but also to be able to give them enough care that they need.  One way of letting them feel and know is through the power of touch of massage.  Here are some

Benefits of Massage

A fetus inside a womb can already feel a mother’s love through a light  massage of the abdominal area.  A physical contact before birth will help the child  inside develop well.

It is also advisable to a father to do the same which bring him closer to the mother and his child.  Same with the couple’s relationship to each other as they await for their bundle of joy.

A regular massage can be done to their children as a way to maintain communication with them.  Same with an adult, a child coming from school has their own struggles in schools and sometimes goes homes feeling low.  A  comforting touch from massage is like a pat on the back to make the child relax to release the tension.

Parents are not the only one who can do the massage in the family.  Children are also taught to do simple massage at the age of six.  It is a way of teaching them the joy of giving their time and self to others.  They can express their love in simple ways through massage to their parents.  As parents,a gesture of little things done by their children is already a reason for them to be happy and forget problems and other everyday stress.
When a child is sick, it is good to give them a light massage to help blood circulation and improve energy.
A child who grows up with a regular massage tend to cope up with social problems and a more mature individual.

There is no greater joy of giving or receiving a gift of touch by a loving hand expressed through the unspoken communication of massage.
