Infant massage therapy

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.

  • What is an infant massage?

    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.

  • What are the benefits of infant massages?

    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.

  • Session information

    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.
