Get In Touch With Your Senses

    Touch. One of the five senses. Arguably the sense we take most for
    granted. Touch is not only a sense, but along with food and shelter, it is
    a basic human necessity. Without it, we do no exist. It is unfortunate
    that our society has become increasingly guarded due to the overload of
    negative touch, but the benefits of positive touch to health, and healing,
    are unparalleled: touch can relax, comfort and reassure. Physically
    touching can relieve pain as it increases the amount of immune cells in
    the body. Emotionally, and mentally, it can relieve stress and anxiety,
    reduce depression as well as having positive and uplifting affects on
    behaviour and moods.

    Massage treatment, only as recently as a few decades ago, was considered a
    natural and normal part of medicine. Nowadays massage is viewed as more of
    a luxury rather than a necessary part of wellness and healing. In many
    parts of Asia, massage is considered a part of everyday life, and baby
    massage time is just as important as baby’s sleep, bath and feeding time.

    Touch is a baby’s first, and most important, teacher. Babies need touch to
    survive and grow. This need remains with us throughout our lives. Studies
    show that a baby’s ability to thrive, especially a premature baby, is
    directly connected with the amount they are touched, held and mothered, so
    much so that clinical studies have shown that babies were able to thrive
    when all other medical possibilities had been exhausted.

    Just a few minutes massaging your baby each day can help baby become
    calmer and happier, with a healthier immune system as massage releases
    endorphins, those ‘feel good’ hormones that help us all reduce stress.
    Baby massage could also make your child smarter: as well as stimulating
    your baby’s nervous system and encouraging brain development, studies have
    shown that children with lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in
    their blood do better at mental and motor ability tests.
