The benefits of Mindful Massage
I encourage you to experiment with massaging your child at some of his bedtimes.
You could apply deep pressure to his body using essential oils. As I have written touch is not a luxury for any of us it is a necessity. Being properly touched in a safe way could regulate and support his immune system, lymphatic system and nervous system.It could help prevent colds, the flu or respiratory infections to name but a few!
Also by giving massage to your child you could also benefit and potentially feel peace and happiness from the experience. You are making a connection with each other.
If you receive mindful massage regularly (from a therapist or spouse) then you could have more interest, capacity and ability to carry out massage on your child.
