  1. Massage is the practical way of communicating love and affection to babies.
  2. Babies need touch and movement for their healthy development of their brains.
  3. The sense of touch develops in the 4th week in the womb, but it takes 2 years from birth to establish the brain connections that enable rational and caring responses.

  5. Touch brings with it connection and communication, stimulation and relaxation, calming and healing.
  6.  Babies need quality interaction with the adults closest to them to feel secure and free to explore.

Does the lack of touch in our lives lead to the rise in certain health problems (mental and physical health), and many of the social ills, that we see these days? The separation of baby and parent immediately after birth seems fundamentally wrong – and so obvious. Carry on getting the word out…
