Baby Massage 101 is an extensive workshop exploring the basics of therapeutic massage techniques gently designed for babies. Version 1.0 features over 30 HD tutorial videos of demonstration, covering baby massage from head to toe

Research has shown therapeutic skin-to-skin connections help babies get off to a great start in their early development, and massage is a wonderful gateway for parents and children to communicate and bond through skin-to-skin contact -- nurturing the psychological, physiological, and developmental growth of the baby in the process

Features 1080p HD videos filmed with higher frames rates for extra detail, with sections of video slowed down so each massage stroke can be focused in more detail.

Demonstrations of the massage techniques explore the following parts of the body in the following sequence: Face, Arms, Hands, Shoulders, Back (whilst baby is laying on Back, and whilst baby is laying on stomach), Hips, Legs, Tummy, and Feet. Also featured are stomach massages that may be therapeutic for expelling stuck air through the body and regulating digestion.

Massage Benefits Include:

+ Nurturing an Early Bond -- Massaging makes your baby feel loved, and helps the early development of trust and contact through the sense of touch

+ Reducing Colic -- Research suggests colic may be related to over stimulation, and a massage is a wonderful way to relax your baby to a calm and tranquil state

+ Regulating the Breath -- Infants with irregular breathing patterns will find the skin-to-skin contact soothing due to the skins rich nerve endings

+ Boosting the Immune System -- A study showed that infants who were massaged over 10 weeks experience fewer occurrences of illness

+ Aides Digestion -- Touch can stimulate the secretion of digestive hormones to help regulate the digestive system

+ Development of the Brain & Body -- Studies have shown babies who received extra skin-to-skin contact grow with enhanced neurological development as well as the stimulation of growth hormones

+ Stress-Relief -- The therapeutic touch and skin-to-skin contact can significantly reduce stress by reducing levels of cortisol and releasing endorphins

+ Moving Stuck Air from the Body: Therapeutic leg motions and gentle stomach massages can help the flow of air pass through the baby
