Importance of Touch

Studies at the University of Colorado and elsewhere have demonstrated that infants whose mothers have difficulty in touching, cuddling, or talking to them during the first few months of life are more likely to suffer from developmental growth or delay. Infant massage is an ancient art that connects you deeply with the person who is your baby, and it helps you to understand your baby’s particular nonverbal language and respond with love and respectful listening. The deep emotional bonds formed in infancy lay a foundation for a lifetime of trust, courage, dependability, faith, and love.

撫觸的重要性

科羅拉多大學和其他地方的研究指出, 嬰兒在剛出生頭幾個月,如果難以被母親觸摸、擁抱或與母親交談,很有可能承受發育障礙的風險或延遲。 嬰兒按摩是一種古老的藝術, 它深深地連接著父母與寶寶之間的連繫, 令你理解你寶寶非用語言表達的特定提示, 並用愛和尊重的傾聽來回應。 我們在嬰兒時期與父母形成的深厚親密關係,會為我們將來成為一個擁有信任、勇氣、信仰,富有同情心和愛的人奠定了基礎。
