Baby Massage - The Special Art of Touch in the Clinical Center Mutterhaus Mitte

The Power of Touch

The skin originates from of the same germ layer as the nervous system. When we caress the skin we are also touching the soul. 

Baby Massage as Communication

Baby massage is a form of parent-child communication. Through touch, contact with the child is made and a deep bond is developed that often lasts a lifetime.

Experience Communication

Discover how your child communicates with you and learns to relax during a baby massage. The massage is done with the baby, not on the baby. Love, acceptance, and respect are conveyed to your baby through this technique. If you massage your baby during breaks in your daily routine, massage becomes a method for communication which is available throughout your entire parenthood. Lay the foundation, together with your child, for a lifelong ability to relax.
