Subject infant massage experience

hi gloria, long ago and far away i was a certified infant massage instructor. i really enjoyed showing people how to massage their babies. i always thought kids who have had so many medical procedures would benefit from the positive healing nature of the massage touch to counter all the painful medical touches. i use bits and pieces of that knowledge in my work today - especially when i teach people how to touch someone firmly yet gently before working with the child. i think parents who have children with disabilities would greatly benefit from the bonding and confidence that massaging their babies would bring them -and the babies would benefit too! that early bonding is so critical. :)
