Los Angeles, CA, February 01, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Tina Allen, owner of Liddle Kidz® Infant Massage and Director of the Children’s Program for The Heart Touch Project, has teamed up with Angeline Piotrowski of Momstyle News to provide families with education and practical techniques on the benefits that infant massage can have for them and their babies. These parent enrichment workshops will take place at The Heart Touch Project in Santa Monica, California.
This workshop focuses on massage therapy for infants and includes hands-on instruction in infant massage techniques shown to encourage bonding and nurturing between parents and their children. Massage develops an intimate connection and bond between caregiver and child. It helps the caregiver to understand and respond to their child's nonverbal language with love, caring and compassion. Infant massage is also an effective lesson for families on how to interact with each other in a compassionate and gentle manner.
Nurturing touch has been shown to have many positive benefits:
Relaxes and soothes- Nurturing touch is a natural way to relieve stress for parents and their children.
Deepens Bonding- Essential one-on-one time that will enhance family bonding, understanding and ability to nurture.
Improves Communication- Increases caregiver’s confidence and sensitivity to their baby’s cues.
Contributes to development- Stimulates growth and healthy development of baby’s body, mind and spirit.
Empowers- Enhances caregiver’s ability to understand their children’s special needs.
Helps baby sleep better- By helping babies to release stress hormones which build during new experiences.
The infant massage parent enrichment workshop will be presented by Tina Allen, LMT, CIIT, CIMI, owner of Liddle Kidz® Infant Massage and Director of the Children’s Program for The Heart Touch Project. To register: firstname.lastname@example.org, call (323) 660-6684 or visit www.momstylenews.com.
