Infant Massage strokes for legs and feet
We begin with the legs and feet. Babies of any age enjoy having their legs and feet massaged. It gives baby a chance to establish trust and accept massage gradually.
Establish eye contact with your baby and smile. Ask baby’s permission: “Can Mummy give you a wonderful massage?”

Hand and arm massage.
Massaging your baby’s hands is a great way to calm baby and get them ready for bed. As you are massaging, imaging you are releasing all of baby’s tension out through their fingertips.
Face, neck and scalp
The face and head have highly developed nerve endings. Massaging these areas has a very significant effect on the entire nervous system. A baby’s face accumulates a lot of tension by sucking, teething and crying. By massaging baby’s face, it relaxes these areas, and also stimulates the lymphatic system. A gentle massage on the cheeks can also help relieve sinus congestion.
Take care not to press on the soft spots (fontanelles) on your baby’s head.
Massaging the back has a powerful effect on the nervous system, which in turn helps increase the circulation and relaxes the whole body. Massaging baby’s back will also contribute to their motor development, improve their posture, muscle tone and general flexibility.
Always work on either side of the spine. Not the spine itself.
