)-- Lora Heller, music therapist, teacher of the deaf, and founding director of Baby Fingers LLC, has expanded her mommy and me sign language program to incorporate Infant Massage classes. There are tremendous benefits for parent and baby alike when it comes to infant massage. It is relaxing for both the grown-up and the child, and provides an opportunity for intense bonding. While parents and caregivers are learning to understand and respond to their baby’s cues, confidence in their parenting skills develops and strengthens. At the same time, infants are benefiting from sensory stimulation, a boost in their immune system, improved skin condition and circulation, assistance in sleep and pain management, and so much more.
Baby Fingers Founding Director, Lora Heller, has extensive experience as a music therapist with medically fragile infants. She has first-hand knowledge of the power of touch as an experienced music therapist, early childhood deaf educator, and mom of two young boys. Lora is training to become a Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM) through Infant Massage USA’s internationally recognized training and certification program. Their infant massage classes are unique – they incorporate basic sign language for words such as "more," "stop," "hurt," "happy," "I love you" and others. Lora’s classes will also touch on the significance of the music people play or sing during massage, and she offers valuable insight to parents whose children have special needs.
