The Power of Touch
Hello everyone! My name is Margaret Wallis-Duffy of Wallis for Wellness and I am thrilled to be presenting a hands-on workshop on the Power of Touch, highlighting the benefits of baby massage baby daily at The Babytime Show.
From years of experience as both a therapist and a Mom, I have seen first hand the power that touch can have on our lives and the health and wellbeing of our families! Over the past 2 decades, I have enjoyed sharing my expertise and passion about complimentary medicine in the media but this week, Infant Massage, a wonderful parenting tool, is also a misnomer. Although the benefits of this loving touch can begin as early as the first few hours of life, the program continues to offer it’s diverse benefits as your child grows. In the beginning, research supports the fact the massage can be used for relieving symptoms of gas/colic, increase weight gain, and assist in the improvement of sleep patterns. However, as your child blossoms into toddler and preschool years, intentional therapeutic touch can help to alleviate growing pains, improve body awareness and body image as well as promote the potential of a lifetime of healthy parent-child communication.
You won't want to miss this workshop as I will share a wide range of benefits, hands on techniques and practical tips to stock your parenting toolbox and help to keep you and your family happy and healthy! For many of you that know me, you may also find that I give some tips for keeping Mommy healthy, as I truly believe that “if Mommy isn’t happy and healthy, no one is happy!”
We are also very excited to be launching our first WoW Baby On-line Tutorial Module on Gas/Colic at the show. A show special discount for Babytime customers will be available. Get the WoW Factor, help is just a click away! http://www.wowbaby.ca
