Relief for parents and baby – Therapists trained in infant massage can offer a solution for parents whose babies are experiencing gastrointestinal distress, sleep issues, fussiness or other common challenges newborns face when they enter the world. Teaching your clients techniques for massaging their babies can resolve these issues, resulting in a happier, more relaxed infant and mom. Sheryl White, owner of Baby Kneads in Southborough, Massachusetts, is certified in infant massage and shares her expertise with parents at many local libraries. At the same time, she incorporates sign language with touch therapy, which engages both sides of the brain.
