Touch is one of the most important gifts and healing remedies we can give or receive.

Birth is a chance for two human beings to begin a closeness that will last a lifetime.  A special way to show your baby that he or she is loved, safe and understood is by massage.  Massage can lay the foundation for a lifetime of self esteem and good communication between the two of you.
