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
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.
