Babies rely on good muscle tone for gross & fine motor development from holding their head up, rolling & crawling to good posture & learning to walk. A gentle massage can strengthen & support baby's neck, back & trunk.
Through massage we can relax tight muscles, encouraging baby to stretch & flex their muscles, which strengthens them.
Baby massage can stimulate muscle tone for hypotonic (abnormally low muscle tone) babies. Increasing & improving muscle tone can in turn help with joint mobility.
