Massage can be good for your baby’s brain and development! Stimulation of the skin through massage can aid the process of myelination of nerve cells, which essentially facilitates the protective covering needed around our nerves to help keep body and brain coordinated.

Through stimulation of the skin, the process of myelination can be supported, enhancing neurological and motor development. Tactile stimulation improves sensory awareness though touch, eye contact, smell and sound, helping to teach babies about communication, speech and language.
