Touch is the very first senses we develop in the utero, and is
central to the rest of our senses. It is the sense which is most
developed at birth, and is our very first form of
communication. All of our other senses depend upon touch for
valuable sensory information. Infant Massage provides the
parent/caregiver with the opportunity to communicate love,
comfort, care and support for their baby/child through the
power of nurturing touch. The idea of touch is very simple, yet
powerful in what it conveys. Touch conveys your love, care
and attention. Nurturing touch provides a foundation for
stability and attachment, helping the child to grow healthy and
happy.
Touch can be generally categorized into three areas:

Touch that feels good and is POSITIVE!

Hugs

Touch that feels good but is wrong
Touch that feels bad but is good (like tickling)
Spanking
Hitting
