嬰兒按摩 Baby Massage

嬰兒按摩是自古以來流傳已久的一種安撫嬰幼兒的方式, 而於近期又再度被西方國家所重視。根據研究指出,讓寶寶處在有安全感的環境並替他溫和地按摩能幫助寶寶健康快樂地成長。嬰兒按摩以自然又舒適的手法讓寶寶身心得以放鬆,並能充分感受到父母透過肌膚的觸摸所傳遞的關愛。 我們的講師為國際嬰幼兒按摩協會(International Association ofInfant Massage, IAIM)的合格講師,內容將涵括理論與實務操作兩方面。

嬰兒按摩的益處包括--

  • 幫助寶寶睡得更香甜
  • 讓寶寶身心放鬆達到舒壓的效果
  • 可減輕便秘或腸絞痛所帶來的不適感
  • 協助肌肉發展與增進血液循環
  • 增進腦部發育與中樞神經發展
  • 促進親子間的互動與聯繫感

適合對象
  • 出生 ~ 8M 寶寶: 這個年紀的寶寶最適合按摩,因為還不會離開;但這個年紀作息也比較不固定。如果上課時寶寶想睡覺,建議媽咪就讓寶寶睡,媽咪用娃娃練習手法,回家時依寶寶的作息幫他按摩。
  • 24 周 ~ 30周 孕媽咪: 很多媽咪生完寶寶,後能夠帶著寶寶出門時寶寶都接近 6 個月了,尤其是新手媽咪。但寶寶按摩越早開始對寶寶的好處越顯著。建議孕媽咪可以在孕期時就來上課。這樣寶寶一出生,媽咪就可以開始幫他按摩,與他互動。 無論生前有沒有上完一期 5 堂課,生完後 Judy 會再提供 2 堂課的復習。
  • 8個月以上寶寶的家長: 這個年紀的寶寶已經會爬來爬去,不會願意乖乖躺在那邊接受按摩。但按摩對寶寶的好處並不局限於小小寶寶。建議大寶寶的爸比、媽咪可以來上課時用娃娃學習手法。在家時,依寶寶的作息及耐心和寶寶玩按摩遊戲。Judy 的 Aaron 就是 1歲半時才有機會接受到媽咪的按摩,但他還是很喜歡,現在快六歲,看到媽咪在幫弟弟按摩,也還是會湊過來玩一下。重點是,有肌膚之親的孩子,真的會和爸媽很親密喔~

Advantages of the IAIM Infant Massage Program
IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) classes are more than just the mechanics of a massage routine.  Our program involves many different styles of touch, movement, interaction and communication.

Both research and anecdotal evidence from families have shown that there are many ways that babies and families may benefit from infant massage.  These benefits can be grouped into four categories: Interaction, Stimulation, Relief and Relaxation.

Interaction in Infant Massage May Include:
  • Promotion of bonding and secure attachment
  • Verbal/non-verbal communication
  • Development of trust and confidence
  • Using all the senses
  • Feelings of love, respect, and being valued

Each Massage May Stimulate:
  • Circulatory and digestive systems
  • Hormonal and immune systems
  • Coordination and balance
  • Learning and concentration
  • Muscular development and growth
  • Mind and body awareness

Parents May Find that Infant Massage Helps Relieve:
  • Gas and colic
  • Constipation and elimination
  • Growing pains and muscular tension
  • Teething discomfort
  • Cramps

The Massage Promotes Relaxation which May be Shown Through:
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Increased flexibility and muscle tone
  • Regulation of behavioral states
  • Being calm and being able to calm themselves
  • Reduction in stress hormones

Suitable Participants:
  • Newborns ~ 8M old immobile babies:  This is the best age to start infant massage for your baby because babies at this age are particularly prone to the discomfort of colic and growing pains.  Massage routines can be soothing and relieving.  However, babies at this age are also the least predictable with their schedule and routines.  Should your baby is tired during the class, we suggest that you learn and practice the strokes with a doll in the class while your baby sleeps, and then massage your baby at home according to his/her schedule.

  • Pregnant Mommies at 28W~36W: Learning the massage before your baby arrives is the best preparation you can make to welcome your baby.  You will be equipped with the knowledge on benefits and theories of touch that you will be motivated to start massaging your baby in the very first hours!
