The comprehensive UK Integrative Medicine & Health program combines traditional medicine and treatment with other complementary therapies – such as infant massages – to help our patients achieve optimal health and healing.
An infant massage is a gentle massage given to infants by their parents that provides them both physical and emotional comfort. During each session, trained massage therapists will teach parents how to massage their babies. Only parents will be physically interacting with their children.
Gentle touch during infant massage communicates love and promotes emotional growth and bonding. Parents report that infant massage has resulted in their babies eating and sleeping better and experiencing reduced incidence of colic.
Parents may bring children between the ages of 2 and 5 months. The cost is $42 for three sessions (one series), which includes a parking pass and an educational book.
Sessions are located in the Simpson Family Theater of Kentucky Children’s Hospital. Parking is available at 110 Transcript Ave., directly across S. Limestone from UK Chandler Hospital.
