Massage for newborns and infants is an important part of Asian and African culture. Massage also plays an important role in growth and development and there is a growing interest among parents in this regard in Western countries as well.
Researchers have found that gentle massage improves children’s sleep, calms crying babies and strengthens the mother-baby relationship, and lowers the hormonal pressure ratio of restless babies.
However, a scientific analysis has shown that massage gives children comfort and happiness, but there is no evidence to suggest that massage improves a child’s physical or emotional development. ۔
